At Brigham and Women’s Hospital we aspire to be the care provider of choice for diverse patients and their families, and the employer of choice for diverse employees.

This requires an inclusive environment that values differences including, but not limited to race, gender identity, ethnicity, language, sexual orientation, age, physical or mental ability, religion, income, and national origin. To achieve this, we provide education and promote policies and practices that support patients, their families and our employees.

The Center for Diversity and Inclusion (CDI) aims to enhance workforce diversity by providing career advancement and professional development opportunities and through promoting increased recruitment and retention among all diverse faculty, trainees and students.  CDI’s mission is to promote a vibrant, diverse and inclusive professional community where every person thrives.  Current efforts include the following:

  • Career Development Lectures & Luncheons
  • Community Building & Networking
  • Diversity & Inclusion Dialogues
  • Leadership Programs
  • Personal Consultations for Academic Promotion
  • Professional Development Opportunities
  • Summer Training Programs
