Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Trainings

COM-T is committed to creating an environment of inclusive excellence. One major step in achieving this goal is improving our learning environment to recruit, develop, and retain a diverse and inclusive pool of faculty, fellows, residents, students and staff. With that goal in mind, the Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion facilitates a series of trainings promoting the value of diversity, equity and inclusion
