- The Office of Diversity and Inclusion (ODI) was created in 2012 to elevate diversity and inclusion as an important strategic priority for the UA Colleges of Medicine. The office includes the Office of Global and Border Health and the Hispanic Center of Excellence.
- The University of Arizona Health Sciences (UAHS) LGBTQ+ Interest Group was created to support and provide a safe, accepting, inclusive, and respectful environment for our LGBTQ+ Health Science Community and allies.
In the vein of the University’s commitment to creating an inclusive and supportive environment for all people, it is important to use the pronouns for people that they use for themselves, it is a cornerstone of conveying respect. One aspect of employing gender-inclusive language is using someone’s pronouns. In other words, this means that when you refer to a person, you use pronouns that are reflective of their gender identity and that they want others to use to reference them. Just as you cannot assume someone’s gender identity, you cannot assume the pronouns that someone would like to be referred to by based on their appearance.” For more information on the importance of pronouns, check out this resource: http://libguides.library.arizona.edu/LGBTQClassroom.
