Education and Skill Building

At UT Southwestern, we believe education and awareness are instrumental in developing a culture of inclusion. Diverse viewpoints lead to better creativity, innovation, and productivity - it's imperative that we draw on everyone's strengths. Employees perform better when they feel valued, included, and a sense of belonging. 

Trainings in diversity and inclusion are a best practice to ensure all employees understand how they can foster and benefit from a diverse and inclusive workforce. We offer several opportunities for our employees to enhance your Diversity and Inclusion toolkit.
