Improving Hiring Practices
We are developing a Best Practices for Hiring guide to improve hiring and retention of diverse employees at IGHS.
We have hosted several DEI training sessions for employees to build a more supportive and inclusive workplace culture, from bystander intervention, to the use of gender pronouns, and accessibility.
In 2022, IGHS faculty, staff and students participated in a 21-day global health challenge to learn about coloniality and how its legacies and attitudes affect global health work. The goal was for participants to reflect on how we conduct global health work and how we can inspire change. We gathered articles, poems and videos as part of this self-guided learning activity.
We invite you to take the Challenge!
Reimagining Global Health
From 2021–2022, IGHS hosted a series of talks on decolonizing and reimagining global health with global health leaders. Watch all the talks.
IGHS continues to grapple with the history of global health and how to transform it to be more equitable and just.
The IGHS and Department of Epidemiology and Biostatistics Social Justice Book Club met from 2020–2023 and is currently on pause.
The goals of the book club were to help members become more comfortable talking about race and racism; learning lesser known parts of U.S. history; reflecting critically and deeply about our behavior, thoughts experiences and complicity; and becoming better allies by generating ideas about how to change ourselves and society.
