Hosted by the Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion, and follows the State of Diversity address during MLK Week.
In early 2021, the Executive Faculty of Washington University School of Medicine approved a “WUSM Leadership Commitment to Anti-Racism Statement,” naming racism as a public health crisis and committing to address racism within our institution, policies, and educational frameworks. The commitment includes a campus wide anti-racism curriculum aimed at building the capacity of our community to do the work of anti-racism as individuals and as an institution.
Our office is hosting one hour community discussions for WUSM community members to learn more and talk about the statement, what it means to them and how you can be involved in this important transformation initiative. We will host these community discussions from 12/21 – at least 3/22. We will add more dates later.
