Diversity

Our program is inclusive in its constituency; therefore, our term diversity includes underrepresented minorities (traditionally defined as African Americans, American Indians/Alaska Natives, and Latinos, who have historically comprised a minority of the U.S. population). We are inclusive of all people regardless of their ethnic identity, gender identity, sexual orientation, disability and language proficiency.

Our activities are varied and have included:

  • Welcoming events for new staff and trainees
  • Educational faculty training activities
  • Ouch! That Stereotype Hurts (training in strategies against masked aggressions)
  • Defeating Unconscious Bias
  • Seminar series on bias in the workplace with residents
  • Diversity dinners
  • Getting to know your community through food events

If you have any questions or would like additional information on diversity, equity and inclusion at Yale Pediatrics, please feel free to contact me at marietta.vazquez@yale.edu or any of the members of our Pediatric Diversity Council.
