At UCSF Health diversity and an environment of inclusion are more than a set of Human Resources Policies and Procedures. Diversity and an inclusive environment are valued, celebrated and are defined in our Core Values: Pride, Respect, Integrity, Diversity and Excellence.
A diverse workforce serves to meet the healthcare needs of our ever increasing diverse populations and translates to diverse and innovative ideas and solutions all of which strengthens our organization and supports the UCSF Health mission of “Caring, Healing, Teaching and Discovering”, and the overall goal of UCSF which is “Advancing Healthcare Worldwide."
The diversity of the people of California has been the source of innovative ideas and creative accomplishments throughout the state’s history into the present. Diversity – a defining feature of California’s past, present, and future – refers to the variety of personal experiences, values, and worldviews that arise from differences of culture and circumstance. Such differences include race, ethnicity, gender, age, religion, language, abilities/disabilities, sexual orientation, gender identity, socioeconomic status, and geographic region, and more.
