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.
