GME Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Justice Toolkit

Committed to Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Justice

The GME Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Justice (DEIJ) Toolkit provides programs and trainees with DEIJ definitions, resources, training modules/videos and best practices to support IU School of Medicine’s transformational change towards embodying a place where everyone feels welcome, supported, included and valued. The toolkit provides resources for the inclusive recruitment and retention of a diverse group of residents and fellows, and also serves as the main resource for all the DEIJ initiatives, events, workshops and training sessions happening at IU School of Medicine and the IU Office of the Vice President for Diversity, Equity, and Multicultural Affairs. Programs and trainees will no longer need to search for DEIJ information from various sources on their own.

Please note—the development of the DEIJ Toolkit is an iterative process, and more resources and professional development opportunities will be added over time. The toolkit provides an opportunity for IU School of Medicine staff and visitors to our website to review our showcase DEIJ work and offers key takeaways to support DEIJ programing at other institutions. Check back often for additional DEIJ material!
