DIVERSITY CALENDAR

2021


The University of Cambridge and the School of Clinical Medicine represent a diverse community of people from different cultural, religious and secular backgrounds. The purpose of this diversity calendar is to recognise festivals, holy days and other important dates which individuals may wish to commemorate. This initiative is part of our commitment to promoting a positive work culture and our focus on issues of equality, diversity and inclusion (EDI). This calendar can be used alongside information on other Clinical School events https://hr.medschl.cam.ac.uk/events-and-training/
