The #LEADatStanfordMed is hosting our graduation event tonight! Our scholars from diverse backgrounds and specialties have spent 10 months with us focusing on leadership capacity building and developing educational materials to advance #diversityandinclusion.
We've even adapted to #COVID19, and showed activism on campus in solidarity against #RacismInAmerica

One voice can create a unified message
Why don't we speak up?

Be part of the conversation. There are multiple ways to use your voice.

Achieving diversity is not enough. We need to strive for #inclusion and #belonging.

Having these crucial conversations, our children are looking at us.

Group 2: Breaking Habits: Strategies for Countering #UnconsciousBias

#LEADatStanfordMed #ImplicitBias
Group 3: #MinorityTax: Accounting for the burden of being a representative

As schools of medicine, institutions, and society have been interested in being #antiracist, often they turn to minority groups to help develop programs.

Just as when #COVID19 started, we didn't go to the patients to ask them to figure out how to treat COVID, why are we expecting underrepresented minorities to figure out how to address #racism.

Group 4: The Perks of Not Being a Wallflower: Practical Skills for #Allyship in Medicine.

What did you see? Did you say something? Did you NOT say something?

We don't want people to feel guilted to be an ally.

Group 5: Sponsorship vs. Mentorship: There are specific differences.

How to deal with setbacks and adapt
How to advocate for ourselves and our ideas

Group 6: A weapon and a wound: using privilege to combat #bias.

#LEADatStanfordMed #whatdoctorslooklike
Group 7!!! Breaking down the notion of "otherness" to combat #ImposterSyndrome and #burnout

Learning how we are all different from each other, and this otherness brought us closer to each other.

Last year's keynote, @DrAugustusWhite:

"All of you here are national treasures. You've come this far in your life. You've developed this much. You've contributed this much. And your potential for contribution is tremendous. Society and humanity deserve what you have to offer."
