We are committed to building a diverse workforce and to
fostering an inclusive work environment with the goal of reducing inequities
for our patients, staff, and community. Though medicine has made great
strides in addressing health inequities, we recognize that there is much more
work to do. We are committed to addressing bias, racism, and sexism through
critical appraisal of ourselves, our fellowship program, and our institutional
practices. We strongly believe that celebrating and embracing our differences
is essential to the advancement of science and medicine and critical to
providing equitable care for all patients and families.
Here are several examples of current initiatives that reflect our commitment to
diversity and inclusion:
