Justice, Equity, Diversity, & Inclusion (JEDI) media club was started by members of the Stanford Department of Pathology in June 2020. It is a monthly virtual book/movie discussions centering minoritized voices and topics related to systemic racism, and is generally held on a Sunday afternoon.
The reason this is important for us as medical doctors, biomedical researchers, and trainees in particular, is that we will not be exposed to these voices/view points in our daily lives unless we actively seek them out. The goal is to help remedy our implicit biases, create a safe space for our colleagues to share their experiences, and increase our confidence discussing these topics so that we can be better upstanders/allies/advocates.
