  • As we continue our efforts to advance IUSM’s commitment to diversity, members of the ODA team have developed a series of presentations and workshops focused on increasing cultural competence and awareness of issues about diversity. In this format we will come to staff meetings/retreats, etc and present 1 to 2 hour workshops on topics such as multicultural competence, microaggressions, unconscious bias, understanding diversity at IUSM and others.
