Diversity & Inclusion
A core value of the School of Medicine, diversity and inclusiveness fuel success in everything we do.
The School of Medicine is deeply committed to building a diverse and inclusive campus community in which everyone is welcomed, valued and supported. Many offices, organizations, individuals, events and resources are dedicated to supporting this critical goal, which is part of a university-wide framework to cultivate a stronger climate of diversity and inclusion at Washington University.
Share your perspective
Faculty and staff are invited to share and hear perspectives on diversity, inclusion, equity and current events. Facilitated by the Human Resources Office of Diversity and Inclusion, Perspectives dialogue sessions provide a safe space to practice constructive perspective-taking and build connection in our community.

We believe that understanding our similarities and differences allows those factors to enrich how we work and learn together. Our diversity and inclusion efforts address factors including race, color, ethnicity, gender, age, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, national origin, disability, religion and socioeconomic background.
