We acknowledge that the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Center sits on the traditional land of the first people of Seattle, the Duwamish People past and present, and honor with gratitude the land itself and the Duwamish Tribe.
We also acknowledge exploited labor, racist, heterosexist, ableist, xenophobic, religious, sexist, trans-antagonistic and other oppressive violence, and the ongoing struggle for justice on this land. We reflect on the ancestors of our various peoples, nations, tribes and families; ancestors whose struggles, pain, power, privilege and strivings we hold in our very bodies. We recognize, with gratitude, all those whose sacrifice, struggle and labor make our daily freedoms possible, and challenge us to learn, work and live justly.
Lifesaving research demands more than innovation and dedication. It requires curiosity, creativity, and fresh and varied perspectives. That’s why diversity is a core Fred Hutch value that is integral to our work.
To establish the Hutch as a national exemplar in academia for its Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion approaches and practices.
To lead the integration of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion as core values, principles, and practices to advance the Hutch’s mission of eliminating cancer and related diseases.
The Office of Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (ODEI) coordinates and facilitates diversity, equity and inclusion initiatives in four core areas: research, workforce development, workplace culture and climate, and community development. Learn more about our team.
The Public Art and Community Dialogue program, led by the Fred Hutch Office of Diversity, Equity & Inclusion, provides an opportunity for artists, employees and the broader community to be in dialogue about community solidarity and our pursuit of equity in research and healthcare.
Diverse artists from underrepresented and minoritized communities will engage with the Hutch community of scientists and science supporters in developing public art expressions for Fred Hutch. The final commissioned work will reflect the themes, emotions, expressions, history, culture, and aspirations of the affinity communities and visualize the commitments of Fred Hutch to deepen our anti-racist and inclusive efforts in pursuit of scientific excellence.
Our goal is to increase the use of National Institutes of Health Diversity Funding to diversify research faculty, trainees and staff. The NIH Funding Supplement page include general eligbility criteria, institutional criteria and funding opportunities available to Fred Hutch and University of Washington researchers.
