Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

Our Vision

The Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology's plan for diversity, equity, and inclusion was developed with input from faculty, staff, and house officers, and strategically aligned with the following key institutional priorities:
  • Create an equitable and inclusive campus climate
  • Recruit, retain, and develop a diverse community
  • Support innovative and inclusive scholarship and teaching

OBGYN Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Committee

The OBGYN DEI Committee provides a quarterly forum to operationalize strategic initiatives within the Department. It is comprised of an engaged, interprofessional team of faculty, house officers, nurses, and staff (clinical and administrative).

Inclusive Curricula Guide

Our team has developed an inclusive curricula guide, adapted from Brown University, that highlights considerations for the development of educational materials to promote DE&I and bias-free instruction. We hope this document guides you in creating a more inclusive and diverse environment.
