Diversity & Inclusion
At the University of Kansas Medical Center, the executive vice chancellor and leadership believe diversity and inclusion are integral values that guide the way we envision our future. Our strategic initiatives are underway, as we seek to integrate diversity, cultural competence and professionalism across the medical center campus.
Here's what we have accomplished to date and what is planned for next steps:
- A "Think Tank" of more than 80 faculty and staff representing all areas of the campus was convened at the end of 2012. For six months, this group created a catalog of diversity, cultural competence and professionalism initiatives. More than 190 activities were identified. View the inventory here.
- A Diversity, Cultural Competence & Professionalism (DCCP) Strategic Plan Workgroup was created in 2013 to focus on four key areas identified by the Think Tank. View the DCCP workgroup materials here.
The four key areas identified include:
» Recruitment and retention
» Organizational structure
» Educational curriculum
- An EVC Diversity & Inclusion Cabinet will be formed to carry out the recommendations of the DCCP workgroup in the four key areas. Learn more about the EVC Diversity & Inclusion Cabinet.
