Diversity, Equity & Inclusion at Siteman

Siteman Cancer Center aspires to provide the highest quality cancer care, research, and prevention. We acknowledge that we live in a diverse community that experiences racial, ethnic, geographic and other disparities. We know that research and care provided by individuals of varied backgrounds, experiences and areas of expertise, working in an inclusive community contributes to excellence. Therefore, we work collaboratively within and outside of WUSM to improve diversity, equity and inclusion practices and assist in achieving cancer equity through our care, research and prevention.

To achieve our commitment, Siteman will:

  1. Recruit, hire, and retain diverse clinicians, researchers, trainees, and staff; enhancing participation and leadership of women, individuals of color, and from groups nationally under-represented in the research workforce, center leadership, and advisory boards.
  2. Develop an environment where everyone is and feels welcomed and valued.
  3. Implement policies and practices that support inclusion and advancement of potential trainees and employees, regardless of identity, with priority given to equity in pay, service, and opportunities for leadership.
  4. Be an institution that is accessible to everyone who seeks care, learns, conducts research, and works on our campus, providing reasonable accommodations to those seeking that assistance.
  5. Encourage and give full consideration to all applications for training and employment regardless of race, color, ethnicity, age, religion, sex, sexual orientation, ability, gender identity or expression, national origin, veteran status, socio-economic status, genetic information.
