Anti-Racism & Racial Justice

Fostering Inclusion, Diversity and Equity at GUMC

We choose to work and learn together at Georgetown University because we value the dignity of each person, the pursuit of social justice, and actions that achieve common good through service to others.  Fostering an inclusive and equitable community will allow us to thrive as a more diverse community.
