Diversity, equity and inclusion are core values of Washington University, the School of Medicine, and the Department of Otolaryngology. By bringing together individuals from varying backgrounds, experiences and areas of expertise, we benefit from a collective wealth of knowledge and ideas. It is this diversity that allows us to develop richer solutions to complex scientific and clinical challenges and to train culturally sensitive clinicians and scientists. 

We highly value diversity in all its forms, and we pride ourselves on providing a welcoming and inclusive environment in which everyone can thrive. These values form the foundation for achieving excellence in all that we do.
