DIVERSITY | INCLUSION … Be Better Program at Massachusetts General Hospital

The Massachusetts General Hospital, Center for Comparative Medicine, will share their experience with implementing a diversity and inclusion strategy that incorporates Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DE&I) best practices in a lab animal/ research setting with the goal of demonstrating what a culturally competent organization looks and feels like. The program is called the Be Better Program and has 3 goals: 1) Understanding through education and analysis where polices, practices and expectations are negatively impacting staff members of color; 2) Ensuring that the desired culture is evident in the daily actions of our members and 3) Realizing our success through measurable change.

Learn how the leaders have prepared themselves for this new initiative and how they are incorporating these improvements directly into the department’s culture.

The conversation features: DONNA M JARRELL, DVM, DACLAM, MGH Attending Veterinarian/Director and members of her Be Better Task Force on their experiences and lessons learned to date.
