Greetings MUSC Community Members!

Can you believe it is already August?  I hope you are continuing to be safe and well as we navigate these ongoing unprecedented times. Take time to practice self-care, it is critical to your physical and mental well-being. Your well being is important to us!

I also hope that in spite of the ongoing challenges you will continue to be excited about our future as an organization and stay on the journey!  As we continue to grow and focus on our mission, the Office of Equity’s team is here to serve the entire organization.  We are committed to ensuring that every MUSC environment urban and rural is one in which everyone feels they belong and are respected.  We join the MUSC growing community in ensuring that every component of our tripartite mission serves its learners, employees, patients and families with compassion, excellence and respect.

As we implement strategies and initiatives for the end of summer and through fall I ask that the entire community mark your calendars for the 6th Annual Inclusion to Innovation Summit, Monday, November 7th.  The Summit will be virtual again this year and features the follow keynote speakers:

Opening/Morning - Dr. Christopher King, Inaugural Dean for School of Health, Georgetown University

Noon- Dr. Robin DiAngelo, Author, White Fragility, Affiliate Associate Professor of Education, University of Washington

Closing – Ms. Isabel Wilkerson, Pulitzer Prize and National Humanities’ Medal winner, author Caste and The Warmth of Other Sons

Look for more details in the coming weeks. Let us know how we are doing

Be well,

Willette S. Burnham-Williams, Ph.D.
