We affirm the contributions of all people in our communities. Diversity and equity are at the core of our mission and threaded through our clinical practice, research, service, and education in the Department of Rehabilitation Medicine and each of its divisions. We welcome and value voices and perspectives from all individuals with intersecting identities and lived experiences and believe that those diverse perspectives contribute significantly to excellence in medicine and rehabilitation.
We explicitly reject bias, discrimination, and exclusion on the basis of race, color, creed, religion, national origin, sex, age, marital status, disability, public assistance status, veteran status, sexual orientation, gender identity, or gender expression. We all are responsible for recognizing, confronting, and addressing bias and discrimination and diligently working for positive change in support of equity, diversity, and inclusion.
