Diversity and Inclusion Dialogue Series

The D&I Dialogues are a series of conversations led by employee facilitators, or a panel of individuals with experience in the topic. The purpose of the series is to provide an opportunity for UC Davis Health employees and community to discuss critical topics concerning race, culture, gender, stereotypes, diversity, and multiculturalism in a safe, caring and professional environment. Through the series, we strive towards building relationships through increased understanding and trust; which helps to foster an inclusive workplace.
