The Office for Institutional Equity and Duke Health annually convene for the Diversity Informational Breakfast. This year, we are extending the event to include diversity leadership teams and groups from Duke University.

The Breakfast, scheduled for Thursday, November 12th at 8:30 AM, will include presentations from three Diversity Leaders or Teams that will highlight racial equity, diversity, or inclusion efforts that inspire and support the advancement of Duke's collective goals. A brief Q & A will accompany each presentation.

Following the presentations, a panelist of several Duke experts will discuss How the Pandemic Has Magnified the Challenges of Achieving Racial Equity in a Post-Election America. The Duke community will have the opportunity to engage the panelists with a moderated Q & A.
