Equity, Diversity and Inclusion
Our Commitment to Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion
The Duke Department of Pediatrics is committed to achieving equity in health outcomes for all children through outstanding clinical care, advances in research, and excellence in education. We emphasize strategies and practices that promote a culture of diversity, (health) equity, and inclusion.
The representation of unique and varied identities, perspectives, and experiences.
Recognizing and providing necessary resources to allow all patients and families to achieve desired health outcomes. Health equity is also understanding and implementing practices that acknowledge and address structural inequalities.
Promoting an environment that cultivates respect, psychological safety, engagement, and belonging by embracing the unique and varied identities, perspectives, and experiences of all.
