Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI)

The Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) working group seeks to communicate and promote resources, initiatives, and events across Vanderbilt University Medical Center and Vanderbilt University campuses to educate and inform the IMPH community on DEI topics. 

We welcome your input on topics, guest speakers, and events. The DEI working group will facilitate discussions with credentialed moderators to lead activities.

We are committed to raising awareness of the diversity represented at VUMC and VU by building community with our colleagues. 

The DEI calendar includes a range of events. Some events are limited to students or university staff. Please check event websites to confirm.
