Faculty Community

OFDD offers many programs intended to foster inclusivity and visibility for members of our diverse faculty community.

  • Basic Science Diversity Liaisons

    Each Basic Science Department and Interdisciplinary Program (IDP) has an appointed Diversity Liaison charged with promoting diversity best practices across the academic pipeline by liaising between Departmental Chairs or IDP Directors, members of their Department or IDP, and OFDD, OGE, and OPA.

  • Clinical Diversity Liaisons

    Each clinical department has an appointed OFDD Liaison responsible for communicating faculty needs and concerns between departmental chairs, departmental faculty, and OFDD.

  • LGBTQ+ Forum

    The yearly Stanford Medicine LGBTQ+ Forum is an opportunity to promote visibility for LGBTQ+ individuals in research and healthcare, and to sponsor a continually connected Stanford LGBTQ+ community.
