2024 DICE Summer Brown Bag Series: The Department of Psychiatry, in partnership with the URMC Office of Equity and Inclusion, will host a series of Hybrid Events as an opportunity to learn about critical topics through a diverse lens in a safe space. In this year’s series, Creating Inclusive and Psychologically Safe Spaces, the purpose is to provide educational opportunities to learn about inequities surrounding our communities.

There will be eight sessions between July 10th and August 28th focused on all facets of inequity. This year, the focus is “Creating Inclusive and Psychologically Safe Spaces”. Registration is available for the series here.
