Pediatric Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Catalyst

Dear Pediatric Faculty,

Please consider applying to be a Pediatric Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Catalyst for the 2020-21 academic year, and be part of a new program funded by a grant from the UCSF BCH-SF Presidential Innovation Fund to promote Diversity, Equity and Inclusion across all of our clinical sites.

We are seeking 10-15 faculty members to actively work towards creating a more inclusive and equitable environment for our faculty, staff, trainees and patients. Our goal is to help faculty develop skills to lead conversations and serve as a resource to other faculty and learners as we increase the emphasis on diversity, equity and inclusion in our clinical environments.

Members of this cohort will participate in targeted faculty development offerings to prepare them to lead and support discussions on making our learning climate more inclusive over the course of the 2020-21 academic year. 

Total time anticipated time commitment is 4-6 hours per month. Participating faculty will be recognized by the Department of Pediatrics as Pediatric Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Catalysts, be part of a community of practice, and have opportunities to get MOC credit and participate in scholarship.

We are seeking a diverse group of faculty from across our clinical sites.  If you are interested in joining this exciting new initiative, please fill out this interest form by 6/1/20.  Anyone is welcome to apply!  You can also nominate faculty members by emailing me directly.

Please email me with any questions.

Thank you, and stay safe!
