Words Matter Campaign

The Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion Council has launched our 2022 departmental inclusion campaign: Words Matter. This campaign commits to:
  • Increase the awareness of verbal microaggressions
  • Clarify history / intent behind specific language use
  • Acknowledge and grow our individual and collective cultural humility
  • Provide space to ask questions and share experiences
Join our commitment through showing your "Words Matter" sticker - these waterproof / outdoor stickers are perfect for your water bottle, car, phone, door, or computer!  Pick-up your sticker at these locations:
  • Pediatric Department Head's Office - AO-121 Academic Office Building

No Hate Campaign

The Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion Council launched a 2018 Pediatric-focused revival of the former campus-wide "No Hate" campaign. Join us in creating a welcoming, safe, and respectful workplace and community for all by wearing a button.

When wearing this button, consider these things we each can do to create a welcoming, safe and respectful campus for all:  

  • We can respect each other.
  • We can treat each other with human decency.
  • We can promote healing.
  • We can help each other.
  • We can intentionally reflect on our own roles and power and show up in collaboration with people who have been marginalized.
  • We can stand together for respect, for each person’s right to be here to learn, to work, to teach.
  • We can aspire to create an amazing world together.
NO HATE
