Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

As core values of Washington University School of Medicine, diversity and inclusiveness fuel success in everything we do.

Backed by strong commitments from the School of Medicine dean and school leadership, and priorities and programs coordinated by the Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion, we are laying the foundation for a stronger, more equitable campus and community where everyone is welcomed, respected and supported.

The Office of Diversity, Equity & Inclusion oversees the School of Medicine’s efforts to promote equity for the medical school community. Programs, events and initiatives are designed to raise awareness, inspire action, support equitable employment and cultivate a culture of diversity and inclusion.
