Diversity & Inclusion

We cultivate diversity and inclusion among students, faculty, staff, and leadership.

While advancing diversity and inclusion has long been institution-wide goals at NYU Langone Health, the events of 2020 have necessitated bold action and an explicit commitment to stand against systemic racism. Consequently, we developed a strategic roadmap for achieving our vision of an inclusive culture of medicine, positioned to lead the fight for health equity. This framework will be used to engage stakeholders across NYU Langone to collaborate on sustainable change. Our roadmap is anchored by four pillars:

  • optimizing organizational culture
  • promoting inclusive community
  • increasing diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) capacity
  • developing and implementing equity-related knowledge

Each focus has associated short-term, midterm, and long-term strategies for achieving our goals. Our team works cohesively to implement our action plan through the following initiatives:

  • developing a sustainable DEI infrastructure for NYU Langone Health
  • increasing diversity recruitment and retention
  • forging pathways to medicine and the science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) fields
  • providing training and professional development
  • fostering community building and learner engagement
  • expanding education and research opportunities for students, faculty, and house staff who are underrepresented in medicine

Explore our DEI initiatives to learn more about how they intersect with our action plan, and opportunities to join our efforts in fostering a diverse and inclusive future within academic medicine.
