The purpose of the Pediatrics Diversity Council at Baylor College of Medicine is to encourage diversity, equity, and inclusion within the Department of Pediatrics by recruiting and supporting residents, fellows, and faculty from diverse backgrounds, in order to foster a culture that promotes the practice of culturally competent health care. We do this by creating programming targeting community outreach, mentorship, recruitment, and education. All who wish to participate are welcome! We look forward to working with you and hearing your ideas!
The Pride Council is a sub-section of the Diversity Council dedicated to advocacy and support for LGBTQ+ trainees, faculty, and staff. Within the Diversity Council, the Pride Council has dedicated efforts in outreach, mentorship, recruitment, and education for the LGBTQ+ community and supports the intersectionality of LGBTQ+-identifying groups with other under-represented groups. The Council is open to all including those who wish to participate as allies of the LGBTQ+ community.
All Baylor pediatric residents, fellows, and faculty are invited and welcomed to join! To become a member and join the listserv complete the BCM Department of Pediatrics Diversity Council Membership Form. If you have questions email firstname.lastname@example.org.
