October 23rd, 2015
The Second Annual Psychiatry Department Cultural Celebration was held on Friday, October 23rd, 2015. Organized by the Psychiatry Department Chair's Advisory Committee on Diversity Issues and co-sponosored this year by the UCSD Office of Equity, Diversity and Inclusion, the event was a resounding success! Faculty, staff, and trainees sampled international dishes and libations and socialized while enjoying Greek guitar music. Activities included drawing the flag of your country of origin and a "Cultural BINGO" game that helped us discover unique aspects of each others' life experiences. Members of the Roots Dance Theater entertained us with a trio of international dances and then, with the help of Department Chair Igor Grant, got some party-goers to join them on the dance floor. We look forward to seeing you at next year's event!

On Tuesday, September 30th, 2014, The Chair's Advisory Committee on Diversity Issues held its First Annual Psychiatry Department Cultural Celebration. Members of the Department, including staff, faculty, and trainees, came together to s
ocialize and celebrate the diversity of our ethnic and cultural backgrounds. The event included a potluck buffet with mouth-watering dishes from different countries and various regions of the US. Attendees shared information about their origins by filling out name tags and placing a pin on a map of the world. Highlights of the festivities included a tango demonstration by talented dancers from the UCSD Department of Communications and an impromptu taste-test between whiskeys from Ireland and Scotland! Thanks to the efforts of the planning committee, led by Arpi Minassian, a wonderful time was had by all, and there was unanimous support for hosting the celebration again next year. Hope to see you there!
