GDI Webinars and Webcasts

The NIH Chief Officer for Scientific Workforce Diversity Dr. Hannah Valantine presented the NIH’s current approach and activities for inclusive excellence in the U.S. scientific workforce. She highlighted four main diversity/inclusion challenges facing biomedicine: Advancing scholarship of the science of diversity and inclusion; Using a data-driven scientific approach to understand drivers and outcomes of inclusive excellence; Studying and mitigating the role of sociocultural factors in recruitment, retention, and career advancement; and Sustaining future workforce inclusive excellence.

The main focus of the webinar was the NIH Scientific Workforce Diversity Toolkit, a free, downloadable interactive resource institutions can use to help advance their own faculty diversity and inclusion. The toolkit guides users through evidence-based interrelated activities that SWD is currently using to foster an inclusive culture that unleashes the power of diversity to achieve research and institutional excellence. These include expanding diversity of the candidate pool, proactive outreach to diverse talent, mitigating bias in search processes, and developing/sustaining mentoring relationships and sponsorship. A key focus is the need to advance institutional accountability for lasting change. Please visit the NIH Scientific Workforce Diversity website and Dr. Valantine’s blog for more information.

In this webinar, NIH Chief Officer for Scientific Workforce Diversity Dr. Hannah Valantine will join Dr. David Acosta, AAMC Chief Diversity and Inclusion Officer, for a presentation on organizational approaches to effect culture change. NIH’s current approach and activities to achieve inclusive excellence in the scientific workforce center on monitoring, tracking, and implementing equity measures, as well as on increasing faculty diversity through a cohort-hiring model that creates a critical mass of diverse talent. As described in a previous webinar, NIH developed the NIH Scientific Workforce Diversity Toolkit, a free, downloadable interactive resource institutions can use to help advance their own faculty diversity and inclusion. Putting these tools to use requires institutional engagement and accountability, which is driven by collection of diversity and inclusion metrics, such as provided by the NIH Equity Committee, implicit-bias education, recruiting diverse talent, and proactive outreach to potential candidates.

Undergirding those efforts is assessment of institutional culture and climate. The AAMC has developed a number of institutional culture/climate assessment tools. The AAMC Foundational Principles of Inclusion Excellence (FPIE) toolkit was developed to provide academic medical institutions (AMI) with a practical set of tools to help address institutional culture and climate and provide AMI with a roadmap for achieving inclusion excellence in the learning & workplace environment. The FPIE toolkit provides a set of nine benchmarks of inclusion excellence, an institutional assessment survey, scorecard, and a database of identified effective practices for each benchmark accompanied by a set of resources that will assist the process of developing strategic action plans (including target goals and metrics) to achieve these benchmarks. Practical application on how this tool can be utilized and rolled out in an AMI will be shared.

The best physicians are prepared to meet the needs of a diverse and ever-changing patient population. Medical advances and an aging population guarantee that all clinicians will interact with patients with disability. Building clinical knowledge and confidence working with people with disability can help medical students competently and respectfully meet the needs of all patients. This presentation provides specific, practical methods and tools to incorporate disability into existing courses and clinical experiences for medical students.
