Diversity Calendar Dec2020With the many different cultures, religions, and countries represented at UAB, it might feel overwhelming when trying to be respectful of everyone’s calendars. To help, the SOM Office for Diversity and Inclusion is offering all faculty, staff, and students access to the diversity calendar.

To use, simply visit the calendar located on our website under, “News & Events.” Automatically, you will see a banner at the top with major holidays and days of recognition with the current month just below. To learn more about any of the events listed, simply hover that holiday and click. You will then be taken to a page that outlines the holiday’s history, how it’s recognized in that culture, and other associated days.
