Monetary Donations Accepted for Diversity Books

The Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Committee has assembled a list of books recommended to read to children, which address questions on diversity, equity and inclusion.

Our Department’s Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Committee has assembled a list of books recommended to read to children, which address questions on diversity, equity and inclusion.  It has been suggested that copies of as many of the books as possible, be placed in each of the hospital libraries.  Faculty and staff have expressed the desire to donate toward the purchase of books and support of this Committee and a fund has been set up specifically for those donations.  The fund will remain open for future purchase of books and activities approved by the Department Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Committee.

Please find here the list of books to be purchased for this initiative.

To contribute, go to the Center for Advancement Donation Site.To search for the fund, enter “The Department of Pediatrics Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Fund”.
