Diversity Month is a month-long series of events and programming that explores different dimensions of diversity (including topics specific to diversity and inclusion in academic medicine) and kicks off a calendar year of programs.


Each year, the Office of Faculty Affairs and Professional Development partners with the school’s Promotion & Tenure committee to offer a series of information sessions on the promotion and tenure process. These information sessions will be interactive, working sessions to help navigate the process of promotion and tenure.



The series explores how the intersections of race and gender affect academic medicine and the health sciences professions. This year's speaker will be Sylk Sotto, Ed.D., M.B.A., M.S. Dr. Sotto serves as the Vice Chair for Faculty Affairs and Diversity, and Assistant Professor in the Department of Medicine at Indiana University School of Medicine. Dr. Sotto also serves as Co-Chair of IUSM’s Diversity Council.

Physicians and scientists are traditionally taught to be problem-solvers; to identify what is going wrong and develop a plan to solve the problem. However, an alternative approach in medical education is Appreciative Inquiry (AI), which adopts a strengths-based approach to identify 'what is going well' with a situation, and how those strength areas can help learners overcome challenges. In this session, participants will explore the concept of AI in the context of medical education.
