We are coming up on year TWO as the Office of Inclusion, Diversity, Equity & Social Justice (IDEaS) within the Department of Emergency Medicine! For the past two years, IDEaS has been creating spaces for growth, collaboration and healing — with a mission centered around creating a safe and respectful home for all employees — to advance racial, ethnic, gender and religious diversity, with a focus on those underrepresented in medicine (URiM).

To revamp our in-person activities, IDEaS hosted our first in-person moonlight dinner to welcome new URiM faculty and staff! A night full of great food, big laughs and shared experiences, it provided a much-needed space to continue fostering spaces of community and belonging!
