SOQIC Diversity, Equity & Inclusion



SOQIC is devoted to fostering a collaborative and inclusive environment within the Department of Surgery at Northwestern University. Inequity, Health Disparities, Systemic Racism, and Bias in Medicine are critically important issues. SOQIC welcomes both diverse ideas and innovative solutions from all faculty, staff, and trainees within our center. Our strategic efforts seek to empower our diverse and exceptional personnel as they pursue improving quality outcomes for all.


SOQIC seeks to promote equity in leadership, promotion, and representation. We aim to foster an environment of thoughtful respect and belongingness. Diversity and inclusion will be integrated into all of the academic and operational activities within our center.
