Faculty Fireside Chats series

Medical Faculty Excellence in an Era of Social Justice Activism series is a new program sponsored by our Offices of Academic Affairs and of Faculty Development and Diversity.

Goals of the series

Provide context and history of race issues at Stanford and in academic medicine, particularly for early career, new, and international faculty.

Offer practical advice that activate faculty’s role as mentors in creating space for student expression and in promoting respectful and inclusive interactions with trainees.

Create opportunities to engage openly with colleagues on challenges related to diversity in academic medicine.
