Candidate Statement

My current roles allow me to pursue educational innovation that promotes diversity and inclusion within clinical practice and academic medicine. As a member of the Status of Women Committee, I have addressed ongoing concerns of women and underrepresented faculty, identified obstacles to the achievement of equity in the representation of women on campus, and proposed steps for overcoming those obstacles. Adaptive leadership recognizes that solutions to systemic inequities are only found by using the collective wisdom and effort of an entire community. I believe leaders should challenge the status quo and historical practices that have nullified diversity and inclusion efforts, while amplifying disparities. Reelection to the Advisory Committee will allow me to continue to engage across campus to address institutional priorities.
