Medical College of Wisconsin Inclusive Excellence Resources

Racism and other “isms” persist and hurt society. Equity is not equal outcomes. Diversity is not a hiring goal. Inclusion is not the number of “diverse” faces in a room, a program, or a one-off initiative

Realizing our vision of a healthy and thriving community for everyone means engaging in the work of advancing health equity through inclusive excellence. The work starts with recognizing adverse impacts, barriers, and untapped opportunities. Getting started means assessing, learning, and building the ability to act with minimum unintended consequences. Taking action means sustained alignment of intention to positive outcomes and impact. Learn more about the foundations of Inclusive Excellence through the resources on this page.
