Learn & Engage

Welcome to the Learn & Engage page!

We hope this page provides you with the necessary resources to continue learning about diversity, equity, inclusion and anti-racism (DEIA). First, highlighted are the four focus areas that the DEIA team prioritizes in our work; institutionalized diversity, equity and inclusion, workforce development, community engagement, and research, evaluation, and dissemination. Following these categories are a list of resources to deepen your understanding of DEIA.

Health Equity in Action Lab (HEAL) - Foundations in Equity Certificate Program

  • The Foundations in Equity Certificate includes a four-part module; each 90 minutes and delivered in-person. Successful completion of all four modules (in any order) will lead to a certificate of completion. Modules can also be enrolled in individually if you are not interested in partaking in all four modules to earn the certificate. 
  • You can register for a specific module using the corresponding registration buttons on the Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Community Engagement website. Please note that if you would like to participate in all four modules you must enroll in each of them separately. Users must use their CU Anschutz email address to access registration.






The DFM Social Justice Book Club was started in the Spring 2020 in the midst of the most recent wave of social unrest triggered by George Floyd's murder and longstanding racial injustice.

The purpose of the book club is for participants to explore diverse perspectives, interrogate their own beliefs about equity and inclusion, and to foster discussion in the DFM about how we can be champions for social justice. 

Through books, podcasts, movies, and other media we will be learning about many aspects of diversity including race and ethnicity, ability, gender identity, sexuality, and more. A sample of media covered so far includes:  "How to Be an Anti-Racist" by Ibram X. Kendi, the podcast "Seeing White", and the film "Crip Camp". 

Virtual book club sessions occur every 6-8 weeks with multiple meeting times per topic.
