Anti-Racism Knowledge Gaps

We're addressing anti-racism knowledge gaps at UCSF


What We’re Doing to Meet This Goal


  • Requiring foundational DEI training for all faculty and staff, to set a common baseline of understanding amongst all UCSF employees​
  • Revising and updating curriculum in our professional and graduate school programs, to ensure curriculum is anti-racist and anti-oppressive​
  • Requiring manager training (Courage to Act, Differences Matter, foundational leadership competencies), to prepare managers to set goals and create action plans to advance DEI work in their respective areas​
  • Supporting the work of the REParations and Anti-Institutional Racism (REPAIR) Project, to address Anti-Black Racism in science and medicine


How We’ll Measure Progress


  • Comparing training completion rates by department with belonging index and climate survey data will help us see whether DEI training completion correlates with higher belonging index scores.​
  • Establishing an inclusive process that incorporates faculty, student, patient, and community input will help us develop a robust, anti-racist, anti-oppressive curriculum.​
  • Tracking training completion rate compared to number of offerings will allow us to identify where to direct resources.​
  • Tracking and analyzing data on who participates in REPAIR Project activities and courses will allow us to make decisions about where to direct resources and outreach.
