Director's message

The AAEO department serves as a catalyst for collaboration and respect within the OHSU community and the Oregon community at large by promoting an environment free of discrimination, harassment and inequity.  We believe the training, education and sound advice the AAEO department offers benefits and permeates throughout the organization affecting employees, students, patients and visitors. AAEO values equity, respect for all, access, inclusion and integrity.  We’re honored to develop, lead and share initiatives to improve the diverse community that is OHSU.
