October 2022 Newsletter | Office of Respectful Environments, Equity, Diversity & Inclusion
Welcome to our first newsletter
Since the Office of Respectful Environments, Equity, Diversity & Inclusion (REDI) was established by Dean Dermot Kelleher in 2020, the team has grown and expanded the services that we provide across the Faculty of Medicine, in support of the Faculty’s strategic plan goal to transform our culture through our working and learning environments.
As part of these efforts, we are excited to present this first edition of our newsletter, which will be sent monthly. The newsletter is another way to strengthen our connection to our community, raise awareness of events, and share information relevant to our ongoing efforts to support change.
