Our Staff: Investing in Talent and Resources


Engaging and Supporting a Diverse and Inclusive Staff

At Dana-Farber, we're working to increase diversity among our faculty, staff, and leadership. Our efforts will help us create an inclusive and diverse medical and research community that better reflects the people we serve; engages and supports our inclusive staff; and expands access to professional opportunities and advancement for all.

In keeping with these efforts, we are committed to:

Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) at Dana-Farber

Our Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) build a unified sense of community among staff; offer group members professional and personal development opportunities; and provide access to Institute leaders as a way to influence meaningful change.

For Dana-Farber employees, ERGs also provide an important path to learning about our differences and similarities — creating a dialogue of understanding among staff from all areas of our Institute.
