Diversity and Inclusion
To create the kind of community that helps us all thrive and prosper, we must create processes that advance equity and inclusion for every aspect of human differences, including but not limited to socioeconomic status, race, ethnicity, language, nationality, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, religion, geography, disability and age. We are committed to reflecting, celebrating and nurturing this diversity. Our goal is to educate ourselves and pursue meaningful practices that support diversity, equity and inclusion in recruitment, mentorship and work environment. When we do so, we improve our collective potential to achieve in ways that benefit members of our Department, the entire Stanford community and everyone we serve.
It is one of our core values to create and nurture a working environment that is diverse and inclusive
