Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

The Tulane University School of Medicine Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology is committed to the principles of diversity, inclusion, equity, and justice.

We believe that every person deserves respect and dignity as well as opportunity for advancement. We know that systemic inequities and underrepresentation in medicine contribute greatly to healthcare disparities, particularly in the field of obstetrics, and we also know that linguistic and sociocultural concordance improves patient outcomes. We understand that diversity strengthens our missions of outstanding clinical care, excellent education, pioneering research, and steadfast service to our community.

Therefore, we are committed to cultivating and celebrating diversity in our department within a welcoming and inclusive environment. We strive to recruit, develop, and advance a diverse workforce, foster the academic advancement of underrepresented minorities in medicine, and promote education and scholarship related to inequities and injustices in healthcare.

To this end, we have established the Committee for Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion to achieve these goals and endeavor for steady progress toward social and reproductive justice.
