Diversity & Inclusion Training
Heritage College Office of Inclusion – Diversity & Inclusion Training
The Heritage College of Osteopathic Medicine has committed itself to an anti-racist culture and, as such, efforts are moving forward to develop an anti-racist culture. To actualize these goals, the college has required that faculty, staff and students complete diversity, equity and inclusion training in addition to creating an anti-racist curriculum. The Office of Inclusion has developed a course that includes what we believe to be significant material that will provide insightful and transformative education around diversity, equity and inclusion.
The Heritage College of Osteopathic Medicine course includes live programmatic workshops that provide historical context to power, privilege and oppressions; racism; sexism; homophobia; and other knowledge about marginalized and oppressed groups. The course will discuss implicit bias in health care and provide tools to minimize bias and interrupt “isms” in real time.
