This event is part of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Commemoration Week. It is free and is open to everyone. The conference will be virtual this year due to COVID-19 distancing restrictions. Registration is not required. This event will be recorded and available for later viewing.
MLK Week 2021 will conclude with Dr. Sherree Wilson, Associate Vice Chancellor and Associate Dean for Diversity, Equity and Inclusion at Washington University School of Medicine, sharing the current state of diversity, equity and inclusion work on the Medical Campus. She is excited to share updates about recent successes and provide an overview of what is ahead. This is a great opportunity to learn more about the Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion and how you can support our work on campus.
“We are now faced with the fact that tomorrow is today. We are confronted with the fierce urgency of now.”
