Diversity, Equity and Inclusion
are central to OHSU's core values. This value sets the tone for how we operate
today and where we're headed. Embracing diversity, equity and inclusion gives
us the power to be better at what we do and to demonstrate integrity,
compassion, and leadership in healing, teaching, research and community
service. This vision isn't just expressed in words on a page.
At OHSU, there is
a deep institutional commitment to equity, to examining how societal factors
such as racism, economic inequalities and disparities in health and health care
impact our hospital system and university classrooms, to be the torchbearers leading
the way to a more inclusive community of diverse healers, thinkers and leaders.
What an exciting time to be part of the OHSU community, carrying forward the
simple concept that all are welcome here.
