Diversity, Equity and Inclusion
Our Commitment to DEI
Spokane Teaching Health, a sponsor of graduate medical education programs in the Inland Northwest, believes that diversity of ideas and experiences is integral to our educational and clinical missions. Diversity enhances creativity and thoughtfulness in our mission and serves as a catalyst for change which will ultimately lead to better solutions to the healthcare needs of the populations we serve. To that end, we are committed to fostering diverse perspectives. We recognize that individuals’ perspectives are shaped by a host of factors, such as their race, ethnicity, gender, physical and mental ability, age, socioeconomic status, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, familial status, education, religion, legal status, military service, political affiliation, geography, and other personal and professional experiences.
We know that the presence of diverse perspectives alone is not sufficient. Therefore, we also are committed to creating inclusive environments where all individuals are encouraged to share their perspectives and experiences. We believe that only through valuing our differences and similarities, and remaining vigilant in advancing equity, will we be able to maintain an equitable workplace and actively pursue equity in all aspects of our work. We commit to being continuous learners and working alongside others to cultivate equity, diversity, and inclusion.
