Diversity & Inclusion
We strive to cultivate work and learning environments that bring the power of inclusion and equity to life – where differences are celebrated, and employees of all backgrounds are empowered to thrive both professionally and personally.
What We Do
At UT Southwestern, the Division of Diversity and Inclusion collaborates with campus partners to drive meaningful and sustainable diversity and inclusion efforts. Throughout the talent life cycle, we combine empirical research with a human-centered framework to inform our programming, training, consultation, and outreach across the wider Dallas/Fort Worth community. Overseeing the institution’s strategic approach to promoting a culture of inclusion and belonging, we employ data-driven strategies and best practices in industry to advance UTSW’s core missions of research, education, and patient care.

Guided by a commitment to building diverse communities, we are intentional in who we reach out to and how we connect with them.
Education & Skill-Building
At UT Southwestern, we believe education and awareness are instrumental in developing a culture of inclusion. Diverse viewpoints lead to better creativity, innovation, and productivity – it’s imperative that we draw on everyone’s strengths. Employees perform better when they feel valued, included, and a sense of belonging.
Training & Consultation
Trainings in diversity and inclusion are a best practice to ensure all employees understand how they can foster and benefit from a diverse and inclusive workforce. We offer several opportunities for our employees to enhance their Diversity and Inclusion toolkit.
Business Resource Groups: Belonging and Business Impact
A fundamental human need, we are hard-wired to belong. When individuals don’t feel as though they belong, it directly affects our ability to advance the mission of UT Southwestern. To foster a culture of belonging, the Division of Diversity and Inclusion oversees various initiatives. One of these initiatives includes UT Southwestern’s Business Resource Groups (BRGs).
