NOTICE Resource Group

NOTICE is a resource group jointly established by UChicago Medicine, the Biological Sciences Division, and the Pritzker School of Medicine. We seek to elevate and amplify women of color for the purposes of increasing the number that advance into leadership positions. NOTICE facilitates mentorship and professional development opportunities, dialogue and safe spaces, as well as resources for members in an effort to cultivate internal talent within University of Chicago Medicine. Through these activities, NOTICE will increase the visibility of qualified internal candidates who are women of color for leadership positions across the organization. Contact BSD’s Office of Diversity & Inclusion for more information.
