Mission and Goals

The Faculty Diversity LENS (Leading to Equitably Navigate Searches) Program helps to create a more equitable, transparent and efficient faculty hiring process. We oversee the Department of Medicine's diversity and inclusion initiatives in faculty recruitment, through systematic improvements to the search process -- including outreach, training, interviews and institutional culture.


Specific Goals And Objectives

We are creating a more equitable, transparent and efficient faculty hiring process. Our mission is to increase faculty diversity (including women, under-represented racial & ethnic groups, LGBTQ+) in initial candidate pool, finalist pool and the final faculty hire, while ensuring candidate excellence.
