McKay DEI Committee

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) Committee

Mission Statement

The Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) committee of McKay is a group of faculty, post-docs, graduate students, and staff committed to generating a welcoming environment that supports people of all identities (e.g., race, gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation, nationality, physical ability, age) to empower them to thrive and bring forward unique perspectives that strengthen the quality of education and produce innovative orthopaedic research.

Our committee continuously asks itself the following questions to support its mission:

  1. How can we create a work environment that best supports our colleagues of all identities?
  2. How do we best challenge members of our community to put in the hard work? To confront their implicit biases? To challenge the status quo?
  3. How can we build a pipeline for students of historically excluded groups to enter orthopaedic medicine and research?
  4. How do we award those students with connections that empower them with opportunities for continual growth?
