Co-Chairs Welcome

Welcome to the UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospitals Diversity, Equity, Inclusion & Anti-Racism Initiative website!  You belong here! Our DEI/AR Council is proud of what we have accomplished in the time since this journey began and know that we have much more work ahead of us.  We want to sincerely thank everyone who has contributed to this work that is at the very foundation of our hospitals, as we uphold the values of cultural humility, community inclusiveness and health equity. Please explore our website that reflects the contributions of so many dedicated individuals within our institution and beyond. Together we can create and maintain a Brave Space where we can share, learn and ultimately transform our healthcare system into a more inclusive environment for ALL.
