Working with an expert in unconscious bias training, we’ve developed a half-day workshop designed to help our faculty understand the effects of unintended bias. This training program is being delivered to DOM leadership, as well as to other key faculty groups (see below for current session offerings). A one-hour workshop is also available to research groups, service lines or other groups within the DOM – contact Sonia Flores, PhD to request this short workshop, or if you are interested in participating in a half-day workshop.
We've established a committee focused on opportunities and career development for women and underrepresented groups, and have also committed to continuing our in-depth faculty salary analysis using AAMC benchmarks, and working with division leadership to address potential inequities in year-in-rank salaries across the department.
Our Strategic Initiative on Gender Equity
was launched in 2016 to identify and jump-start initiatives to support gender equity at all levels throughout the department; this initiative is led by Margaret Wierman, MD
, a professor in our Division of Endocrinology, Metabolism and Diabetes.
