Diversity & Inclusion: Infrastructural Change
Course Title: Diversity & Inclusion: Infrastructural Change
Description: Diversity and Inclusion are among the topics most discussed in health professions relative to access and opportunities, but rarely given time, attention, and resources to the infrastructural changes needed to achieve the goals therein. This session will discuss infrastructural challenges and describe impactful changes that can provide more access and opportunity for those historically underrepresented and underserved in the health professions.
Participants will be able to:
1. identify institutional barriers,
2. describe how to achieve institutional diversity & inclusion,
3. and create equitable pathways for access and opportunity
