Town Halls hosted by SoM Faculty for Anti-Racism and Equity (FARE) Committee

February 25, 2021 - 2:00pm to 3:30pm

The Faculty for Anti-Racism and Equity (FARE) committee has been working since July to develop priorities for dismantling racism and promoting equity, enhancing representation broadly and at leadership levels for underrepresented racial and ethnic (URE) faculty across the School of Medicine (SoM). This committee was assembled via self-nomination and an application/selection process under Dean Mary E. Klotman’s leadership as part of the Moments to Movement initiative.

The FARE committee has worked to identify key targets for change and has created preliminary recommendations for the SoM in an effort to combat racism and propose more equitable solutions for faculty in the areas of: APT, Mentorship, Compensation, Resources, Leadership, Culture, Recruitment and Retention.

The committee’s process, identification of priorities and preliminary recommendations will be presented to faculty at two town halls. These town halls will include a brief presentation followed by a discussion/Q&A period. The primary goal is to engage the broader faculty community and provide an opportunity for information exchange. Faculty are able to submit comments and questions via this qualtrics survey in advance and may attend one or both of the town halls to submit feedback during the event. The survey for comments will remain open until Friday, March 5, 2021. The FARE committee will take comments into consideration while finalizing their recommendations before presenting them to SoM leadership. The FARE committee recommends you read or re-read the COST for Black Faculty Letter ahead of this meeting.

Presented by: Faculty Anti-Racism Committee - FARE Committee Members
