2018 ADEA Diversity Workshop
Dates: October 24, 2018
Venue: Hilton Toronto Hotel
Location: Toronto, Canada
The ADEA Diversity Workshop Series provides dental school
administrators, faculty and staff with tools and strategies to promote and
capitalize on the role of diversity in achieving academic excellence within
health professions education. The 2018 Diversity Workshop will take place on
October 24 in Toronto, Canada, just prior to the 2018 ADEA Fall Meetings.
Effectively facilitating “an environment characterized by, and
supportive of, diversity and inclusion” involves more than promoting and
supporting diversity activities—it requires effective leadership and careful
development of a deliberate, collaborative and sustainable diversity plan.
The ADEA Diversity Workshop is a one-day learning symposium to
help participants understand the scope of the diversity-related CODA standards
and assist them in developing mission-driven diversity initiatives for their
institutions. The small group workshop format affords the unique opportunity
for quality discussion, sharing and support among participants and presenters.
