Diversity, Inclusion, and Wellness
It is the mission of the Northwestern University Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine to promote the health and wellness of our administrative staff, faculty, and trainees through education and initiatives that:
- Support employees in making healthy choices in their work and home lives.
- Encourage habits of wellness and support a sense of community.
- Increase awareness of factors and resources contributing to improved wellbeing and burnout prevention.
- Inspire and empower individuals to take responsibility for their own wellness.
Diversity and Inclusion:
The Department of Pathology's mission on Diversity and Inclusion largely mirrors that of the Feinberg School of Medicine, which can be found here.
The Department's specific goal and mission is to promote an academically enriching and supportive climate that promotes diversity, inclusion, and access while allowing all members to thrive and succeed.
Through strategic planning and department-wide recognition, we hope to empower our students, residents, faculty, and administrative staff to not only build a diverse and inclusive space, but to ensure that our department is a community where all individuals will thrive, grow, and be recognized in their value.
Please stay tuned and check back for events, photos, links to surveys, useful articles, and much more!
