The OHSU Department of Medicine Faculty Development Steering Committee Statement on Antiracism

The DoM Faculty Development Steering Committee (FDSC) affirms that BLACK LIVES MATTER.

We acknowledge that racism (including structural racism) and other forms of oppression harm people of color, including Black/African American, Latino/LatinX, Native American and Alaskan Natives, Asians, Native Hawaiian, and other non-majority individuals.

Faculty development programing at Oregon Health & Science University supports faculty members’ role in medical education, research, patient care, and administration.  We must look deep into our practices, policies, and services to identify and dismantle structural racism, and any role it has played in DoM faculty development.

Our obligation is to create meaningful faculty development programing that educates and empowers all faculty. The FDSC will lead efforts to ensure faculty learn to address racism, bias, and other forms of oppression and to remove barriers, address disparities, and increase cultural competency in medicine.  The FDSC will identify ways to increase allyship, acknowledge biases and examine privilege and equity in the work of faculty and professional development.

Our Faculty Development programing:  We will examine and modify our programing and speakers:

1. Increase awareness of unconscious bias

2. Engage in productive interracial dialogues to increase cultural understanding of the diverse populations we serve

3. Provide mentorship to aid in career satisfaction, inclusion and promotion for faculty of color

Efforts will also allow us to confront the inequities of the past, reveal inequities of the present, and develop effective strategies to move us all towards an equitable future.

Our accountability: Working closely with Departmental leadership, the Dean’s Office Diversity Leaders, the OHSU Center for Diversity and Inclusion, Human Resources, Organizational Development, and the Office of Civil Rights Investigations and Compliance, we will provide information and resources.   Together we can promote visibility, inclusion, transparency and accountability.   Promoting the leadership and voices of faculty of color will make us stronger and better prepared to serve our learners, patients, colleagues, and community.

In solidarity we will work for a better place for all faculty to thrive!
