Book and Journal Club

The DMICE Diversity, Equity and Inclusion committee has a Journal Club discussion group.  This journal club discussion group aims to bring together our staff and faculty to read, listen to and/or watch media on topics related to diversity, equity and inclusion, and create a forum for us to gather and discuss the topics as a group.
