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 in principles of justice.

JEDI spotlight

Stanford celebrates Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month. In collaboration with Okada House, the Asian American Students' Association (AASA), and the Asian American Studies Program, the Asian American Activities Centers has developed a statement to recognize API Heritage month and a calendar of events. Learn more here.

The Office for Religious and Spiritual Life offers tools to help identify when academic and work calendars coincide with religious holy days. For upcoming religious holidays from April - June, read this message.

Stanford celebrates Black History Month. Events throughout the month of February honor the contributions of Black students, faculty and staff to Stanford’s scholarship and community.

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.

Joint message from Kevin and Shaila

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. Our commitment is to embed JEDI into all that we do and to reach staff across the School of Medicine through effective HR policies, processes, and procedures. This requires continuous reflection on our individual and organizational actions  and dedication to reimagining how we collaborate and operate. We are determined to provide support to you, the School of Medicine staff community, and this website is one way we will communicate resources and progress. We are your co-conspirators.
