Last July the Duke Neurology Department's Diversity and Inclusion (D&I) Committee began a project to amplify the voices of its community through writing. This body is composed of faculty, staff, administration, residents, advanced practice providers, and post-doctoral fellows. Many members of our committee have never published before. Voices: Lived Experiences seemed to be the perfect opportunity to allow all members of our committee a chance to voice their perspectives on equity, diversity, and inclusion.
Committee members given the following prompts and asked to respond to a prompt or share a personal story related to equity, diversity, and inclusion. The American Academy of Neurology recently published their stories on their Voices: Lived Experiences blog. Read what they wrote here.
