Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

Strategies and Tactics for Recruiting to Improve Diversity and Excellence (STRIDE) Workshop

8 am to 9 am, September 18, 2017

This workshop is open to faculty and staff.

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.

10 am, October 15, 2018

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.

Racism directs attention away from harmful, inequitable policies and turns that attention on the people harmed by those policies. Kendi employs history, science, and ethics to describe different forms of racism; at the same time, he follows the events and experiences of his own life, adapting a memoir approach that personalizes his arguments.
