OFDD sponsors several networking and community building initiatives that aim to foster an atmosphere of inclusion among a diverse faculty at the School of Medicine.

For more information on networking opportunities, please contact us.

  • Black Faculty Affinity Network (BFAM)

    Meet the members of the Stanford Medicine Black Faculty Affinity Meetings (BFAM), a network created through OFDD's Community Support Initiative. BFAM is intended to provide networking and social engagement opportunities for Stanford medicine faculty across all clinical lines and departments.

  • HEAL Network

    In response to growing interest and expertise among faculty that are dedicated to addressing health disparities, we have launched a Health Equity Action Leadership (HEAL) Network. Based in research and scholarship, the HEAL Network will bring faculty together to determine how we can better address health inequities.

  • LGBTQ+ Faculty Networking

    Stanford Medicine’s LGBTQ+ Faculty Networking Receptions provide a networking forum for LGBTQ+ faculty.

  • Minority Faculty Networking

    Stanford Medicine’s Minority Faculty Networking group’s meetings offer an occasion to meet with and learn from colleagues. Past events have featured Stanford faculty panelists that discuss strategies for success in academic medicine, and we have also honored each year’s HCOE/OFDD Faculty Fellows and the Dr. Augustus A. White and Family Faculty Professionalism Award honoree.

  • OFDD Community Support Initiative

    To build community and encourage new networks that enact positive change for diversity in academic medicine at Stanford, the Office of Faculty Development and Diversity (OFDD) seeks to help faculty establish communities and networks for inclusion.

  • Women Faculty Networking

    The Women Faculty Networking Group is open to all faculty and instructors, regardless of gender, across all lines. OFDD solicits topics and speakers of interest from all those interested in learning about and promoting the professional success of women in the field of medicine.
