Ice Cream Social & Pie Day!

People bring their full selves to work. Thus, to maximize performance DIO supports initiatives that create a sense of belonging to all who work to advance our mission and achieve our business objectives. Summer Ice Cream Socials and Pie Day, in the spirit of the Thanksgiving holiday, enhance engagement and help everyone feel connected and accepted at UMMS.

Diversity Engagement Survey (DES)

The Diversity Engagement Survey (DES) is a collaboration with the University of Massachusetts Medical School (UMMS), DataStar, and the AAMC.

The DES is 22 items long and can be administered to students, faculty, and staff. There is a minimal response burden, and the rich analyses will allow institutions to develop a meaningful inclusion scorecard that characterizes their progress toward creating an inclusive work environment.

Contact the AAMC for more Information
