Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

Mission Statement

The Stead Family Department of Pediatrics shares the University of Iowa’s commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion. We value and respect different cultures, perspectives, and experiences. In the Department of Pediatrics, we are mindful of all aspects of human difference and define diversity in the broadest sense to mean inclusion of all persons, regardless of age, race, ethnicity, gender identity, socio-economic status, disability, political beliefs, religious or spiritual affiliation and sexual or affectual orientation. We also value social justice and aim to increase access to care through outreach clinics across the state. The Department of Pediatrics enhances a welcoming environment by offering a diverse staff that is reflective of our population. Our unique and diverse backgrounds help us to support the needs of all of our patients.
