Equity, Vitality and Inclusion



The Office of Equity, Vitality & Inclusion is launching a series of focus groups to deliver on our goal to enhance racial and gender equity in faculty recruitment, retention, advancement, and professional vitality. Your guidance and feedback will be instrumental to our equity, vitality, and inclusion work, and we invite you to REGISTER NOW.

ALL BUMG faculty, of ALL genders and races, are welcome.

The Office of Equity, Vitality, and Inclusion (EVI) has been established to develop and implement diversity, equity, vitality, and inclusion initiatives for BUMG and will coordinate related activities on the medical campus in these areas with Boston Medical Center and Boston University School of Medicine.

EVI is comprised of three councils that are led by BUMG physicians: Women’s Leadership Council led by Megan Bair-Merritt, MD, MSCE; Vitality Council led by Susannah Rowe, MD, MPH; and Diversity and Inclusion Council led by Cassandra Pierre, MD, MPH. Each of these councils include members from BUMG, BMC and BUSM.

These pursuits are critical to the mission of BUMG to “transform healthcare as an integrated academic multi-specialty practice that defines and delivers equitable, high value, evidence-based care in partnership with our patients, institutions and community.”

These efforts will enhance our performance as an organization, support our values and encourage a culture change to enhance engagement across the medical campus.
