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.
