Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Task Force
The Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Task Force shall explore and recommend strategies and policies to increase the diversity within the Academic Consortium and member institutions, eradicate social inequities within healthcare, and foster great inclusion within the organization and academic medicine.
Many of us come to this organization and find ourselves welcomed into a team of like-minded of people devoted to the same just and worthy cause on behalf of integrative medicine and health. Our efforts together matter in this process of change.
I encourage you to find a way to engage in a deeper way with the Academic Consortium. You will find the gift of new relationships with outstanding people, the type of people who inspire you to be the best version of yourself and to see what you can do better in your work
