What the Diversity & Inclusion Council is Reading and Watching

The Duke Ophthalmology Diversity and Inclusion Council strives to improve communication about diversity, inclusion and dismantling racism efforts across our department and beyond - to create a community built on collaboration, innovation, creativity, and belonging. We recognize that this does not just happen, it takes work. We must actively foster inclusion by making sure everyone feels safe and welcome, all contributions are respected and all voices are heard. The D&I Council seeks to gain knowledge and understanding every day and believes that coming together and sharing resources is a step in the right direction. Below are resources that council members would like to share with you.

These topics have only become more urgent as the national conversation about race is increasingly acrimonious. This fully revised edition is essential reading for anyone seeking to understand the dynamics of race in America.
