Diversity & Inclusion

Diversity and Inclusion Initiatives

Institutional Diversity and Inclusion Action Plans (DIAP) can be accessed via the Office of Institutional Equity & Diversity.  A variety of initiatives and groups regarding diversity and inclusion, and aimed at supporting the AMS, Brown and hospital DIAPs, are sponsored by the AMS Office of Diversity and Multicultural Affairs.  There are also local resources and programs designed specifically to support Women in Medicine and Science, including the Rhode Island Medical Women’s Association, and the national Time’s Up Healthcare organization.

The 2020 Decoding Disparities Lecture Series is now available for general viewing .


Resources from the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC)

The AAMC provides a variety of professional development resources and opportunities, including sexual and gender minority health resources, and workshops on unconscious bias.  The Advancing Health Equity: A Guide to Language, Narratives and Concepts may be of particular help. Resources and opportunities are also provided by their Group on Women in Medicine and Science. Additionally, the AAMC's Academic Medicine has curated a collection of articles on addressing race and racism in medical education.
