The Department of OBGYN together with our institution are actively taking measures to address structural racism and the resulting health inequities. The current disparities in obstetric and other health outcomes among women of color are extremely disturbing. We are committed to improving outcomes and eliminating the healthcare disparities that exist within our community.

We pledge and are working to diversify our workforce while providing the resources and mentorship to ensure success. We are actively developing programs in which learners and employees will thrive in a diverse, equitable, inclusive and safe environment. We expect all who work here to self-reflect, acknowledge and speak out against any bias, discrimination or racism.
