An inclusive, open and diverse community is essential to excellence and fosters voices that have been ignored or discouraged.  To address the Rady Faculty of Health Sciences commitment to equity, diversity and inclusion, in recognition of the underrepresentation of members of historically and currently underrepresented groups, we take proactive measures including implicit bias training for all hiring panels.  We strive for diversity and cultural safety throughout the hiring process (hiring panels, short-list of candidates, interviews).  We encourage you to self-identify any aspect of diversity in your cover letter.
