Supporting LGBTQIA+ Health Equity
The virtual 2020 ADEA Diversity & Inclusion Workshop on Wednesday, Oct. 28, drew nearly 500 registrants. The ADEA Diversity & Inclusion Workshop presented the first-ever ADEA Tapestry Table℠ (Tapestry Table) talk-show style panel with audience engagement and the goal of fostering dialogue and broadening perspectives on diversity, equity and inclusion in dental education.
Our inaugural ADEA Tapestry Table Workshop featured guest Dominique Jackson, LGBTQIA+ activist and star of the FX network’s groundbreaking television series POSE, and highlighted health and well-being issues within the LGBTQIA+ community with an emphasis on transgender individuals. The behind-the-scenes conversation offered a candid discussion between Dominique Jackson and the panelists. They shared personal stories and information that deepened the viewers' understanding of the health equity challenges facing the LGBTQIA+ community, especially transgender persons.
ADEA Tapestry Table is available on ADEA eLearn.
The Tapestry Table℠ is presented through lectures, short-talks, symposia, panels, talk-shows and other event programming with the goal of fostering dialogue and broadening perspectives on diversity, equity and inclusion in dental education.
