Alone in the Ring: A research-based theatre production about inclusive workplaces for healthcare students and professionals. Presented as part of the Annual Stanford School of Medicine Diversity Week and National Disability Employment Awareness Month
Lead by Dr. Tal Jarus and her interdisciplinary research team, Alone in the Ring aims to increase equity, diversity, and inclusion in the health and human service professions and education by highlighting the barriers that students and clinicians with disabilities in health and human service professions experience. In bringing Alone in the Ring to campus during the Annual Stanford School of Medicine Diversity Week and National Disability Employment Awareness Month, SMAC and Stanford Medicine and the Muse hope to continue the discussion on how to spark and sustain change towards inclusive workspaces. Alone in the Ring is followed by a discussion between the team and audience members. During the presentation, audience members are encouraged to reflect: How inclusive is your workspace? How could you make it more accessible?
