Serving our community

The best mix of talent achieves the greatest outcomes.

People with different skills, backgrounds, identities and perspectives are necessary for us to realize our vision. We’re proud of the fact that women now hold approximately half of our academic leadership positions — progress we know will have positive ripple effects.

We work to create opportunities for all, and where barriers exist we close the gaps. Every member of our community gets to be heard, should be involved and must be empowered to achieve to their full potential.
