Weill Cornell Medicine is deeply committed to promoting diversity and inclusion throughout the institution. Under the outstanding leadership of Dean Augustine Choi and the Associate Deans of Diversity, the Office of Diversity and Inclusion at Weill Cornell Medicine leads campus-wide efforts advancing Diversity and Inclusion, and have ensured that there is a diversity champion in each department.
The Department of Pediatrics, in partnership with the WCM Office of Diversity and Inclusion, seeks to foster working and educational environments where all persons can succeed, thrive, and find community, irrespective of race, ethnicity, gender, age or any other domain of identity. The Department of Pediatrics is the second of two clinical departments at Weill Cornell Medicine that have appointed the departmental diversity champion to the role Vice Chair for Diversity. Within the Department, efforts to advance diversity and inclusion include participation in the longstanding pipeline programs at the medical college as well as efforts at the resident, fellow and faculty levels.
