    Access Foundations of DEI training

    Foundations of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Training

    The faculty, staff, students, postdoctoral scholars, trainees, alumni, volunteers, patients, vendors and visitors of the UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospitals (BCH) represent many diverse characteristics, beliefs, and affiliations. Recognizing this rich diversity, BCH seeks to offer all hospital community members an equitable, inclusive, welcoming, secure, responsive, and affirming environment that fosters mutual respect, empathy and trust. As part of our organizational goals to dismantle structural racism and embed Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DEI) thinking in our everyday practices, it is important that we all have common understanding and definitions of basic Diversity, Equity & Inclusion concepts.

    The UCSF Office of Diversity & Outreach (ODO) has developed a 45-minute online DEI Foundational training, mandatory for all BCH staff, faculty, leadership, and board members. The training will be available for BCH SF staff on the Learning & Organizational Development (LMS) platform, whereas BCH OAK staff will access the training through HealthStream, starting January 25, 2021.

    Core competencies:

    1. UCSF Chancellor’s Pillar of Equity and Inclusion, and UCSF PRIDE values – preferably a video of him speaking to these values
    2. US history of racism, with reference to UCSF and the formation of the Black Caucus
    3. Legal requirements (Title VII and Title IX)
    4. UC policies: non-discrimination and bullying
    5. Definitions of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion, Cultural Humility, Unconscious Bias, Micro-aggressions, Gender Inclusion
    6. Examples of never events (including from UCSF)
    7. Examples of how to create an affirming and inclusive climate
    8. Resources - additional trainings, references, roadmap – UCSF will provide the different channels of opportunities for our community me
    Additional Resources

    The Office of Diversity & Outreach has partnered with Learning & Organizational Development to offer four curated collections of additional training and supplemental materials to further your DEI educational journey. These four collections correspond with the four topics introduced in the training and you may access these materials via UCSF LinkedIn Learning with MyAccess:


    Diversity, Equity, Inclusion Champion Training

    Clinical teachers are not trained in how to handle bias and discrimination in the clinical setting where they are teaching. When bias occurs, they don’t feel comfortable addressing it. Students have complained that these issues are not being addressed appropriately, and that it negatively impacts the learning environment. As part of the UCSF School of Medicine Differences Matter initiative, the goal of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Champion training is to increase awareness and skills for clinical teachers so that they can address bias and discrimination when and where it happens.

    At the end of this training, participants will be able to:

    • recognize bias and discrimination in the learning environment;
    • use a shared language to talk about bias and discrimination with students;
    • implement skills to address bias and discrimination; and
    • apply practical tools for addressing bias and discrimination in their day to day teaching encounters.
    • be eligible for 7 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. 

    Diversity and Inclusion Staff Certificate Program 

    This Certificate Program focuses on exploring foundational concepts essential to enhancing an inclusive work environment through lecture, experiential and independent activities. Participants may explore their own backgrounds to deepen their understanding on stereotypes and biases and learn the tools to support a more inclusive climate.

    Learning Goals: To develop a more capable workforce by enhancing staff competencies and capacity relevant to diversity, equity and inclusion, in order to leverage these toward achieving and sustaining campus wide excellence.

    This 4-month long self-directed learning certificate program includes:

    • 2.5 hours in-person sessions twice a month.
    • 2.5 hours of independent learning in between sessions including a core reading assignment, and a number of supplemental readings, video clips, or audio clips to choose from based on learning preference.
