Diversity Statement

The Department of Pediatrics is striving to create and maintain a diverse environment among our faculty and staff that mirrors our diverse patient population. We are committed to promoting and supporting diversity and inclusion in our research, clinical and educational missions to meet the needs of our faculty, staff, students, and the communities we serve. We welcome differences in race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, religion, gender and age within our department as well as within our patients and their families. We are fostering a culturally competent, inclusive and respectful environment for all, as we believe diversity within our department encourages broader perspectives and combats negative stereotyping. This optimizes our ability to provide the best possible healthcare to all.
