DAT - EDI Mentorship survey

FHS learners (undergraduate, graduate, and postgraduate learners) are invited to complete the follow-up mentorship DAT-EDI survey. The purpose of this survey is to gather information about FHS learners’ perspectives on mentorship. This survey should take no more than 5 minutes of your time.

ABOUT:
The DAT-EDI forum is designed to be collaborative, interactive, accessible, and inclusive.  The event will offer a space to learn about the results of the DAT-EDI's work over the past year and allow attendees to engage the seven (7) DAT-EDI working groups on their findings and learn about current and future EDI initiatives in FHS. The hope is that the DAT-EDI forum will contribute to a cultural shift to a more equitable and inclusive environment across FHS and the Queen’s community.

This forum will be offered in a hybrid form to accommodate a large amount of interest and to abide by health and safety regulations.

The Faculty of Health Sciences Equity, Diversity and Inclusion fund brings student initiatives to life and helps to build a more equitable faculty by integrating equity priorities into our curricula, research projects, professional development opportunities and our culture.
