Mayo Clinic's mission is to embrace and engage the diversity of our patients, employees, students, suppliers and communities in order to provide the best health care.
To support our mission, we have developed an organizational structure that involves individuals from all areas of our organization and supports the development and implementation of successful diversity and inclusion strategies, policies and programs.
Mayo Clinic's Office of Diversity and Inclusion oversees and coordinates diversity and inclusion strategies and programs throughout the organization and across all sites, including both clinical and nonclinical work areas.
This office partners with three offices that coordinate programs for our clinical practice, education and research efforts throughout Mayo Clinic:
- Office of Health Equity and Inclusion (practice focus). Develops and implements effective strategies and programs to support and ensure Mayo Clinic's commitment to promote inclusivity and health equity to all patient populations whom Mayo Clinic serves.
- College of Medicine Office for Diversity (education focus). Supports and encourages diversity in Mayo Clinic education programs and careers and designs programs to attract students from diverse backgrounds. Visit the College of Medicine Office for Diversity website.
- Office of Health Disparities Research (research focus). Supports meaningful research programs to identify, develop and deploy strategies to eliminate health disparities, and ensure that our research subjects and patients reflect the diverse communities that form the mosaic of our nation.
