Office of Faculty Development and Diversity (OFDD)
The goal of the OFDD is to promote the recruitment and retention of diverse faculty, students, trainees and staff representative of the communities in which we work and, to develop faculty to their full potential as academic and community leaders. There are many programs and resources available through the ODL.
Stanford Leadership Development Program
The Stanford Leadership Development Program is for selected faculty to learn the skills required to lead small divisions, sections or teams within an academic medical center.
External Leadership Programs
OFDD also offers support for faculty members to attend selected External Leadership Programs. These external programs provide an opportunity to meet leaders from medical schools around the country while furthering faculty leadership capabilities back at Stanford.
Women Faculty Mentoring Group
The Women Faculty Mentoring Group is designed to bring together women faculty in an informal setting to become better acquainted with each other and discuss topics of common interest. It is open to all women faculty and instructors, including clinician educators. The group meets monthly for lunch from 12-1:30 PM on the first Wednesday of the month in the Bing Dining Room. Please join us!
