A message from Dr. Stephen Chanock, Director, DCEG:
The DCEG Fellows Committee and I are joining forces in a learning initiative to increase our awareness of issues related to diversity, inclusion and equity. We are launching a monthly Inclusivity Minute email, which will address relevant topics and provide resources for learning more. I will send the first installment next month.
This project was inspired by findings from the 2018 DCEG Fellows Survey which revealed that 13% of fellows have been made to feel uncomfortable or witnessed others being made to feel uncomfortable in our workplace because of their gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, race, religion or other personal qualities. We aspire to a DCEG culture in which everyone feels comfortable, welcome and valued.
I am confident we are all equally committed to building and sustaining a positive environment for all; we hope that you will take advantage of this initiative to learn together.
