The following resources are provided to assist students, trainees, staff and faculty from around Baylor College of Medicine to learn more about matters related to diversity and inclusion.
Resources to Support the Asian, Asian American, and Pacific Islander Communities
Recently, there has been an increase in hatred and violence toward Asian Americans and those of Asian identity, descent and appearance. There were more than 3,795 anti-Asian racist incidents in the U.S. in the past year alone. This increase is largely owed to the xenophobia and anti-Asian sentiment surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic. Solidarity with the Asian community is needed now more than ever. See a list of ways to support AAPI within the Baylor community and beyond.
Title IX and Gender Discrimination
Baylor is committed to providing a safe and supportive environment for all community members, guests and visitors. We believe that all individuals have the right to be free from all forms of sex and gender-based discrimination, which includes sexual harassment, acts of sexual violence, domestic violence, dating violence and stalking.
On Sept. 30, SuccessFactors users will be able to select several new demographic options, including their preferred pronoun, gender identity and sexual orientation, along with enhanced disability categories. This is completely optional, and only the pronoun information will be viewable by all; the others only will be accessible by the employee and Human Resources. Read more below.
