When and How

We have revamped the Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Champion training to meet our need to physically distance, but still personally connect. The revamped training will still bring you the same content as the in-person training, via an online virtual format divided in 3 parts.

The parts MUST be completed in order, pre-work is mailed to registrants prior to session start:

  • On your own, online, watching a few videos, short pre-work, and a brief reflection. Time: 30-40 minutes.
  • Session 1 via Zoom with a group of faculty and staff from cross-campus. Time: 3 hours.
  • Session 2 via Zoom with a group of faculty and staff from cross-campus. Time: 3 hours.

Sessions 1 and 2 are offered separately. You can sign-up for any day you are available, but it must be in consecutive order. Please commit to a time for both parts 1 and 2. After completing Session 2, you will be listed on the Differences Matter website as one of our DEI Champions.


Designed for any UCSF affiliated Faculty or Staff who interact with learners, Differences Matter Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Champion training sessions are offered approximately twice a month. These free training sessions are eligible for 7 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™

Our goal is to train 2,000 faculty by Spring 2021!
