Q & A: Continuing the March for Racial Equity

The 2021 Duke Campus Climate Survey, the first survey of its kind that measured experiences of university community members, revealed that among 12,751 respondents, more than half of Duke’s Black, Hispanic, Asian, female and LGBTQ+ community members reported experiencing microaggressions in the
past year. 

Whether through Duke University Health System’s “Moments to Movement” initiative or the university’s Racial Equity Advisory Council, Duke has been working to create lasting change around racial equity, diversity, and inclusion.

As Duke’s second century dawns, Assistant Vice President for Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Leigh-Anne Royster and Duke University Health System Vice President and Chief Employee Experience Officer Ian Lee Brown shared thoughts on Duke’s progress.
