Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

OHSU has a goal to be a great organization, diverse in people and ideas. Part of that work is to ensure that we are recruiting, hiring, retaining and advancing a diverse, culturally competent learning community and workforce. We also have a responsibility to reduce disparities in healthcare and to make sure that all patients, no matter their background, receive quality care.

Embracing diversity, equity and inclusion gives us the power to be better at what we do, and allows us to demonstrate integrity, compassion and leadership.

It is an exciting time to be part of the OHSU community, carrying forward the simple concept that all are welcome here.

Leadership Message: Standing up against structural racism

Leadership message: Health Disparities and COVID-19

President Jacobs joined black medical leaders to speak out on racial inequities magnified by coronavirus and why the need for equitable care has never been greater. 

“We must make every effort to protect our most vulnerable communities both during and after this pandemic. That means equal access to testing and appropriate medical care, and equitable investment to help these communities recover physically and economically once the crisis is over. If we fail to address the unique needs and concerns of vulnerable populations, when the coronavirus pandemic finally recedes, we may find that these communities have paid an unthinkable price for our inaction.”
