Staff JEDI (Justice, Equity, Diversity, & Inclusion)

The Human Resources Group is in service to staff across the School of Medicine to build a more inclusive and equitable culture based on principles of justice.

As leaders in Stanford University’s School of Medicine, we deeply value and embody the principles of justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion (JEDI) both professionally and personally. 


JEDI Spotlight

October is National Disability Employment Awareness Month, and there are numerous events to support disabled staff. 

Stanford’s Disability Staff Forum is hosting a series of three virtual lunch and learn workshops titled "Disability and Employment at Stanford". These workshops will explore the importance of disability identity, advocacy, accessibility, and the process for requesting workplace accommodations. Developed by disabled employees and allies, this workshop series strives to educate the broader Stanford community on Disability as a diverse and highly individualized identity and experience. The events will be October 4th, October 11th, and October 25th. Register for free and learn more here.

Stanford Medicine Alliance for Disability Inclusion and Equity (SMADIE) is composed of people who have disabilities and their allies at Stanford Medicine, including patients and community members. Events for Disability Employment Awareness Month include panels on navigating an academic career with a disability, documentary film screening, and accessible dance workshop.

An Evening of Queer Joy (formerly LGBTQ+ Forum) centers the intersectional queer experience on the full spectrum of pain to joy by creating immersive community spaces, opportunities for authentic expression, and an environment of reflective learning. It will take place on October 25th. Learn more here.

The IDEAL Learning Journey has launched for all staff and is available in Axess. The self-paced path includes interactive workshops and discussion groups and aims to create a workplace culture in which all members feel they belong. 

The IDEAL-sponsored Gender Data Enablement project will improve how our core information technology systems collect and share gender and pronoun information with other campus systems with the addition of more inclusive options.

The results of the IDEAL DEI Survey are now available along with dashboards and future action steps.
