Review Journey for Teams Educational ModulesEducational Modules
JOURNEY FOR TEAMS educational modules explore various DEI topics and are designed with busy veterinary workplaces in mind. A DEI champion presents each module with a short video and written tools to help facilitate team discussion. The activities in the modules are brief, and the discussion focuses on identifying one or more behavior changes the group agrees to make (or an individual can make) that furthers their commitment to DEI.
Each module can be covered in a 15-minute meeting. If the team wants to learn more about certain DEI topics, resources are listed to encourage self-learning and additional discussion.
