Association of American Medical Colleges

Session Description

This session will focus on how critical it is for academic health centers to do a deeper dive and focus more on their learning and workplace environment through the practice of conscious inclusion (practice of intentionality and being deliberate in equity, diversity and inclusion efforts) and equity-mindedness (identifying exclusionary practices within our institutions and deconstructing them to allow access to more opportunities for those groups that have been historically excluded from opportunities and achieving their full potential).

Education Goals

  • Reflect on and describe the institutional landscape and the 'lived experiences' of learners, faculty, staff, and community.
  • Explore the practice of conscious inclusion, its demonstrated benefits, and its intimate connection to diversity and excellence.
  • Explore the practice of equity-mindedness, its implications and how academic medical institutions can achieve this through diversity and inclusion excellence.
  • Describe how the AAMC can assist academic medical institutions in reaching excellence through diversity, inclusion excellence and equity.
