Training

Below, you will find more information on the School of Medicine’s Human Resources’ Diversity and Inclusion courses. Specifically, we are providing you with course descriptions, ways to access diversity and inclusion courses, course cancellation, department sponsored course dates and instructions on how to sign-up for the courses. 

If you have any questions about the dates, times and/or locations please contact Jennifer Mosher at mosherj@wustl.edu.

Diversity and inclusion course descriptions

Diversity and inclusion leaders provide a series of four, one-hour training sessions on the fundamentals of diversity education. Each session is designed to build on and provide a greater awareness of, understanding of, commitment to, and action on diversity and inclusion. The courses are designed to be taken separately and sequentially. 

Facilitators use a standard format in each session that consists of psycho-educational presentations in the form of data from research presented in PowerPoint and interactive, hands-on and experiential exercises to illuminate the concepts being presented. 

Three ways to access diversity and inclusion courses

There are three ways to access diversity and inclusion training:

  1. Division or business unit sponsored training: You participate in training that is sponsored by your unit or division. You will be trained alongside individuals from your division or unit only. Division leaders or designees may arrange division sponsored trainings by contacting Joe Pangelinan at jpangelinan@wustl.edu or Jennifer Mosher at mosherj@wustl.edu. We will send your leaders a Diversity and Inclusion Training Request Form to complete and to send back to us. We will then arrange training dates and times with the School of Medicine’s Office of Diversity and Inclusion.
  2. Department sponsored trainings: The Department has arranged with the diversity and inclusion leaders to offer the courses listed below.* These courses are offered only to department trainees, faculty and staff. You will be trained alongside other department faculty, staff and trainees. You are encouraged to sign up through the Human Resource Management and Self Service System (HRMS). If you are not able to register through HRMS, then you may still be able to attend by showing up and adding your name to the sign-in sheet at the training.**
  3. School of Medicine sponsored trainings: These courses are scheduled through the School of Medicine HR department and open to all trainees, faculty and staff on the School of Medicine campus. You will be in courses with trainees, staff and faculty from the whole campus. You will sign-up for the courses through Washington University HRMS. If you are not able to register through HRMS, then you may still be able to attend by showing up and adding your name to the sign-in sheet at the training. **

**Residency trainees: Unfortunately, you do not have access to Washington University HRMS at this time, however, you may participate in trainings by showing up at the trainings and signing your name on the sign-in sheets. We are working with Barnes-Jewish Hospital and human resources to come up with a better way for you to access these courses. Within the Department of Medicine we will track your completed participation and share that information with Department of Medicine leaders. 

Note: The Diversity 1.0 through 4.0 courses are being taught by Washington University Human Resources diversity and inclusion leaders. Each course content and format is the same regardless of who sponsors or teaches the courses. If you access training in any of the three ways, as described above, you will receive credit in HRMS upon completion of the course.

Course cancellation

Because the courses are interactive and experiential, courses with less than 10 registered attendees will be cancelled and rescheduled. In case of a course cancellation, you will receive an email notification from the School of Medicine’s Office of Diversity and Inclusion.
