Welcome to the JEDI Office!
A core value of the IHP is our inclusive and welcoming environment where every person is treated with dignity and respect. The world needs exemplary leadership to advance care for a diverse society, a cornerstone of the Institute’s mission. At the Institute, we educate the next generation of health professions leaders, capable of delivering the very best care for all, locally and globally.
The Justice, Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (JEDI) Office guides the MGH IHP in realizing its mission of being a diverse, equitable, and inclusive organization. JEDI aims to achieve its mission through education, research, community building, and community engagement. JEDI serves faculty, staff, students, alumni, community members, and prospective students by: 1) educating stakeholders about equity, diversity, and inclusion issues; and 2) creating spaces for support of systemically minoritized and marginalized populations so that they can thrive at the IHP.
We define equity as seeking to ensure fair treatment, equality of opportunity, and fairness in access to information and resources for all. We acknowledge systems of oppression in our society and strive to confront power imbalances where none ought to exist within our organization and the communities we serve. An anti-oppression framework is inherently anti-racist and further invites us to consider how other systems of oppression work in tandem like sexism, misogyny, transphobia, classism, ableism.
