FARE Committee Town Halls
The Faculty for Anti-Racism and Equity (FARE) committee has worked 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 was presented at two town halls. These town halls 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 about the recommendations via this qualtrics survey. This survey will remain open until Friday, March 5, 2021.

A dialogue between Duke faculty physicians Damon Tweedy and Jeff Baker: From 1930 to the 1960s, Duke hospital’s wards were segregated by race.

Did the racism associated with the Jim Crow era collapse, or re-appear in new forms?
