  1. To promote ideas and events to further the values of diversity, equity, inclusion, anti-racism, and social justice in our department and fair treatment for all.

  2. To expand our efforts to incorporate diversity in our community engagement and outreach efforts.

  3. To engage everyone in conversations and training and create equal opportunities for advancement.

Our Plan:

  2. Our recruitment team will participate in new recruitment interviews to ensure fairness of the process and to bring in talents of diverse backgrounds.

  3. Our community outreach team will be planning events to excite youth of diverse ethnic and cultural backgrounds about joining UCI for a career in medicine or neurology.

  4. Our website and communications team will ensure that our message and our progress will reach the community.
