Accountable to EDI is a recurring feature in Network News that highlights opportunities and initiatives related to equity, diversity, and inclusion efforts at AHP, the UR Medicine system, and within the community at large.

Closing Out Black History Month: This year’s theme was Black Resistance, and raised awareness of the people, activities, and institutions that, in the face of oppression, contributed to the advancement of African Americans. Members of AHP participated in Black History Month in various ways, much of which can extend beyond February. You can view the resource here and consider adapting it to fit your needs. Although Black History Month 2023 has come to a close, we encourage you to practice continued awareness and support for the Black community all year long.

Women’s History Month: March is Women’s History Month! This year’s theme is “Celebrating Women Who Tell Our Stories.” Women who have been active in print, radio, TV, stage, screen, podcasts and more will be recognized for their commitment to producing art, chasing the truth, and reflecting the human condition.

AHP is committed to equity, diversity, and inclusion efforts and encourages network members to participate in EDI activities in our community.
