Department of Medicine 30-Day Anti-Racism Challenge
The Department of Medicine strives to promote and protect our culture and values that uphold equity, diversity, and justice for all members of our department. We strive to instill cultural competency throughout the department and recognize that diversity makes us stronger, more accomplished, ultimately enhancing the collective impact of our work.
In alignment with the American Medical Association’s recent policy recognizing racism as a public health threat, we believe that as an organization, we must actively work together to dismantle the structural drivers of racism. And, it begins with us.
The work of anti-racism is an ongoing process, and that is why for the month of April, the Department of Medicine encourages our faculty, staff, and trainees to participate in a 30-day Anti-Racism Challenge. Understanding the issues of power, privilege, oppression, equity and social justice is the start of this effort.
- 30-Day Challenge starts Sunday, April 4, which is also in remembrance of the death of civil rights champion Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. who was killed on April 4, 1968.
- The 30-Day Challenge is self-paced and voluntary, and we encourage DOM-wide participation.
- Daily activities are tailored to our campus and the Denver-Metro area, and includes Ted Talks, articles, videos and more.
