EDI Mission, Vision and Values

Our mission is to promote equity, diversity and inclusion (EDI) among our faculty, staff and trainees through education, mentorship, advocacy and outreach in accordance with the UC San Diego Principles of Community. By cultivating inclusive, supportive and creative work and learning environments, we remain committed to meeting the needs of faculty, staff, trainees, and patients in the academic field of orthopedic surgery. Our work in EDI will be guided and informed by our belief in and integration of the following values:

  1. Inclusiveness
  2. Collaboration
  3. Equity
  4. Outreach
  5. Proactive engagement in diversity
  6. Mentorship and professional growth

Our commitment to diversity is based upon the recognition that each individual is unique. Our definition of diversity includes, but is not limited to, differences in race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, heritage, age, physical ability, religious belief, political or ideological belief, and intellectual perspective.
