The Mass General Pathology Service aims to cultivate a diverse and inclusive Pathology community committed to equity, integrity, collaboration, and respect.

We are excited to let you know about the department's efforts over the past year to begin to address the issue of structural equity, in sombination with our ongoing efforts to promote diversity and inclusion and to foster professionalism. We have aligned these efforts under a new DIEP (Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, & Professionalism) Committee.

Through the efforts of many in the department, we have developed a multipart plan, which we have presented to Dr. Joe Betancourt, the hospital's Senior Vice President for Equity and Community Health. Dr. Betancourt approved our plan and will help us coordinate our goals with the hospital-wide efforts in this important area.

We have formed a series of working groups to tackle key goals that have already been identified, with a plan to form future working groups to study specific issues as they arise and make appropriate recommendations. We will also have regular Town Hall meetings with open attendance to solicit feedback from the pathology community.
