2013 Diversity & Inclusion Awards
The Diversity and Inclusion Awards recognize outstanding contributions of diverse students, faculty, staff, alumni and community members to creativity, innovation, quality patient care, educational excellence and outstanding service.
At OHSU, we embrace the full spectrum of diversity, including age, color, culture, disability, ethnicity, gender identity or expression, marital status, national origin, race, religion, sex, sexual orientation, and socioeconomic status. We respect and support diversity of thought, and ideas in nurturing an inclusive environment.
To fully leverage the richness of our diversity at OHSU, we must create, maintain and promote a community of inclusion. Inclusion means that we honor, respect, embrace and value the unique contributions and perspectives of all employees, patients, students, volunteers and our local and global communities.
