Committees and Employee Groups
The Center for Diversity and Inclusion supports and maintains a number of committees and employee resource groups to further our mission of fostering a diverse and inclusive community.
The committee was empaneled by Dr. Danny Jacobs to help identify, prioritize and advise on anti-racism initiatives at OHSU.
Diversity Advisory Council
Comprised of staff, faculty and student representatives from all mission areas, the Diversity Advisory Council advises OHSU's president and leadership team on ways to enhance diversity, cultural competency and opportunity throughout the institution.
Physical Access Committee
OHSU's Physical Access Committee works to identify barriers that prevent individuals with a disability from using campus facilities for instruction, academic support, assembly, employment and health services. The committee advises OHSU's administration on access needs and priorities to meet those needs.
Employee Resource Groups
At OHSU, our continued success depends on the diverse skills, experiences, and backgrounds that all our employees bring to OHSU. To help foster employee growth and development while meeting the needs of a more diverse workforce, OHSU supports the formation of Employee Resource Groups. ERGs provide opportunities for career development, social support, networking, mentoring and community participation. They also help promote cultural awareness and engagement among faculty and staff.
Women in Academic Medicine
The Women in Academic Medicine Committee was established as a standing committee of the School of Medicine in 1993. Its goal is to address issues of concern to women faculty, including career advancement, career satisfaction, participation by women on decision-making bodies at OHSU, pay equity, discrimination, parenting and schedule flexibility.
