Toast to Diversity & Call to Action

Toast to Diversity & Call to Action is an annual event that is a celebration of our diverse community of faculty, physicians, and trainees. Although we have a diverse community, there are few opportunities for those who identify as members of groups underrepresented in the medical profession to gather as a community with spouses and partners, to meet each other, to celebrate accomplishments, and to think about ways to increase diversity and strengthen this community’s impact — until now.

“Toast” is an informal and celebratory event where longstanding members of our community and new arrivals are able to interact. Guests are encouraged to volunteer in various opportunities to strengthen our School and Community including mentoring students, help identify candidates (students, residents, and faculty), serve as lecturers in the SOM curriculum, and to be involved in community engagement. Our goal is to increase diversity and inclusion in our School and make it a better place for everyone. 

Unfortunately our event had to be canceled for 2020 and 2021 because of the pandemic but we are very happy to announce that our seventh annual Toast to Diversity & Call to Action event is planned for Friday, October 7, 2022! More details to follow!
