Dear Stanford Community, 

Join us for the 3rd Annual Diversity and Inclusion Forum! This event will highlight innovative workshops developed by our resident and fellow trainees with their educational mentors who have participated in the Stanford Medicine Leadership Education in Advancing Diversity (LEAD) Program. In 2019, the LEAD Program expanded to allow applications from trainees from across all Stanford GME residency and fellowship programs. 

The Diversity & Inclusion Forum will be an enriching opportunity for faculty, trainees, students, postdocs, staff and community members to learn tools and strategies to enable you to become an effective change agent for diversity and inclusion in medical education.

We will conclude with a diversity fair to bring together and celebrate the people and organizations promoting diversity and inclusion in our Stanford community. All are welcome to participate and we look forward to seeing you on Friday, May 29.
