Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
UNC Nephrology Fellowship: Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
The UNC Nephrology Fellowship is committed to recruiting and training a diverse community of people dedicated to excellence and leadership in medicine and science through education, clinical care, and research.
We acknowledge the strengths and weaknesses of our history and actively promote social justice, challenge discrimination, and address disparities and inequities.
We celebrate the multiple dimensions of diversity that each member of our community offers, including, but not limited to, race, ethnicity, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, socioeconomic circumstance, national origin, geographic background, immigration status, ability and disability, physical characteristics, veteran status, political ideology, religious belief, and age.
We provide a safe environment where all members of our community can engage in dialogue, question, learn and contribute to their fullest potential.
We provide education and training that emphasize respect for differences in culture, language, and life experience and that address both health disparities and the role that implicit and explicit bias can play in decision making.
We advance diversity and inclusion in recruitment, admissions, hiring, retention, and promotion.
