focus areas

Culture and Leadership

Long-term sustainable DEIJ efforts require a shift from focusing on hitting particular diversity goals to managing cultural change. DEIJ committees and councils help create strategic accountability for results, provide governance and oversight on DEIJ efforts, and promote communication on progress.

Planning, Policy and Process

DEI strategic planning helps build shared vision, language, and processes with leaders, faculty, trainees, and other stakeholders. Socialization of DEIJ policies and transparency into workplace processes are key steps in influencing and impacting DEIJ at IU School of Medicine. 


People and Spaces

A fundamental feature of burgeoning DEIJ work is the establishment of communities and spaces that foster a sense of belonging.
