Diversity and Inclusivity Committee
Dream Team's Diversity and Inclusivity Committee was created to ensure that our members embrace diversity in the pediatric unit and foster inclusion in our volunteer initiatives. Through diversity workshops, events, and discussions, the committee intends to uplift and support all kinds of identities.
Many of our patients in the hospital speak Spanish! In this workshop, we reviewed basic conversational and hospital-related terms. We also discussed different ways to communicate to patients, through universal experiences such as the arts and music.
In this workshop, we discussed how as volunteers we should use our academic, experiential, and relational skills better to understand the similarities and differences among cultural groups.
