Who

A list of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Champions who have participated in the program is here. Champions can also be identified by their pins, awarded at the completion of their training.

Training Ambassadors: Differences Matter Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Training Ambassadors are specially selected School of Medicine faculty. After being trained as Champions in May and June 2017, they underwent three full days of training with our partners Enact Leadership. They now lead the Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Training for members of the School of Medicine Community.

In addition to the Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Training Ambassadors, several faculty and staff serve as Community Ambassadors. This group participated in both the Champion Training and a full day of training with Enact Leadership. They are on the ground allies for Champions and encourage colleagues at their sites to participate in the program.
