Office of Inclusion and Health Equity

Our mission

To enhance current inclusion and equity efforts to help ensure that the Department of Pediatrics and Monroe Carell Jr. Children's Hospital at Vanderbilt are able to meet the needs of the diverse population and workforce we serve through the incorporation of cultural competency and awareness at the organizational, systemic, and clinical levels.

Our individual differences are a strength that encourages culturally sensitive care and equal opportunity for all employees. We are committed to our values of inclusion and equity as cornerstones of effective care for all members of our community.
