Diversity, Equity & Inclusion
We are passionate about ensuring that Diversity, Equity & Inclusion are “baked into” our everyday work environment, our patient care practices in our clinics, our innovative and inclusive medical research programs, our community outreach, and of course, all aspects of our Fellowship programs.
From ongoing efforts to continually enhance our diversity efforts, to new and proactive initiatives to specifically examine and ensure that our Rheumatology training programs are equally available to all qualified and interested candidates, we are enthusiastic and dedicated to maintaining an inclusive environment in which all are welcome, heard, respected, and empowered.
We believe that when everyone is included and has a “share of voice,” the entire team benefits from a broader, more enriching environment.
