|Diversity and Inclusion in Health Policy and Management
is not tolerance for difference but inclusion of those who are not the
majority. It should not be measured as a count or a fraction--that is somehow
demeaning. Success at maintaining diversity would be when we no longer ask if
we are diverse enough, because it has become the norm, not remarkable." -

Inclusivity is one of five
values that define the culture of the Department of Health Policy and
The value of
inclusivity promotes a diverse staff, faculty, and student
body who feel fully welcome. It also promotes caring about each other as human
beings and benefiting from everyone's talents.
The documents posted here reflect the
department's ideas about diversity and plans for implementing strategies to
promote inclusivity in all areas of department life. Additionally, these
documents on diversity facilitate and provide guidance for training and
promoting future leaders in health care management, research, learning, and
teaching. Ultimately, these documents
provide a blueprint to help everyone in HPM create
diversity, experience inclusion,
and celebrate change.
