Office of Diversity and Inclusion

Touro Nevada strives to provide an inclusive community where all students, faculty, and staff can feel supported and heard. The Office of Diversity and Inclusion offers resources, training opportunities, and outreach programs so we can learn, share and celebrate our diversity.

Certificates and Training

Safe Zone Training

Safe Zone training is meant to introduce common terms and concepts for shared understanding, bring awareness to issues faced by the LGBTQIA+ community, and understand what being an ally means. Participants are encouraged to reflect upon the evolution of their understanding and think about how they can create more inclusive environments.

Cultural Competence Workshops

The cultural competence workshops are meant to introduce attendees to various concepts to aid in understanding themselves in relation to other cultures, practices, and worldviews. The workshops explore historical events that have contributed to patient reluctance to trust both the healthcare system and providers by marginalized groups.
