The Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai leadership believes in maintaining a supportive, collegial environment free from harassment for faculty, students, and trainees, regardless of gender, gender expression, or gender identity.
We strive to create a culture where everyone is valued and has the opportunity to succeed. To do so, we aim to assess and address the climate and structures at our institution. More specifically, we look to build community while working to address and strengthen policies and programs related to bias and mistreatment, compensation equity, recruitment, retention and promotion, leadership development and family support.
The Gender Equity team works hard to ensure that Mount Sinai plays a role in developing initiatives and promoting equity for professionals in science and medicine nationally and internationally regardless of gender.
