Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Work Group
We are a group of faculty, staff and student representatives who formed in Winter 2020 to address the need to improve the Department of Maternal and Child Health’s curriculum, workforce and training to support diversity, equity and inclusion. We are committed to transparency in the process of meeting, organizing and taking action steps toward antiracism and inclusive excellence. This website serves as a means of publicly sharing our initial charges, subcommittee leaders and meeting minutes with the wider community. Please contact any of the subcommittee leaders to get involved with activities and meetings and to contribute to the conversation and action steps.
