The Medical School STRIDE Committee provides information and advice about practices that will maximize the likelihood that diverse, well-qualified candidates for faculty, fellowship and residency positions will be identified, and, if selected for offers, recruited to the University of Michigan. The committee leads workshops for faculty and administrators involved in selection, recruitment and hiring. Much of the information is also relevant to retention and promotion of these individuals as well.
In partnership with ADVANCE and the Department of Pediatrics' Gender DEI Group, faculty participants from this session will be able to do the following:

Inclusive teaching involves deliberately cultivating a learning environment where all learners are treated equitably, have equal access to learning, and feel valued and supported. In this interactive workshop facilitated by pedagogical consultants from U-M’s Center for Research on Learning and Teaching (CRLT), clinical faculty will examine four principles for creating an inclusive clinical learning environment, one which attends to instructors' and learners' social identities and to the ways systemic inequities shape dynamics in teaching-learning spaces.
Whether your clinical work frequently raises potentially sensitive subjects or rarely does, odds are good you will sometimes encounter a “hot moment”: a sudden eruption of tension, conflict, or big emotion during clinical teaching. This is at times connected to a heightened awareness of the social differences in a room or perhaps a result of patient behavior or at times due to the sensitive concerns unfolding with a patient. What are your choices in such a moment? And how can you take advantage of such moments as opportunities to advance trainee learning?
In order to assist in building community for faculty within the Medical School, the Faculty Development Office is rolling out Pop-up Faculty Lounges. The intention of this program is to gather faculty from across all departments, tracks, and ranks for networking, socializing, and to discuss topics important to all faculty.
We invite Medical School faculty members to a discussion of:
