DiversOT

The purpose of DiversOT is to increase cultural awareness of occupational therapy students, faculty and staff by sharing culture, traditions and experiences of diverse groups within the USC Chan Division of Occupational Science and Occupational Therapy. We also aim to enrich the occupational science and occupational therapy learning environment by working to increase the number of underrepresented students admitted and underrepresented faculty and staff hired; to increase diversity and inclusion in the curricula and to provide a safe and supportive academic environment in which all persons thrive.

Events

DiversOT hosted its first general meeting on Monday, March 19, welcoming students and faculty back to school after Spring Break. We introduced the organization and its goals as well as invited students to take on leaderships within the organization. The meeting was spent eating plenty of pizza, playing LOTAria, practicing our Spanish and eating Mexican candy! The game is a twist on the traditional Loteria and offered an opportunity to brush up on commonly used clinical words (we even provided a translation cheat sheet!).
