Diversity and Inclusion

At DGHI, we believe diversity is a catalyst for new ideas and creativity. It is the nature of global health that we derive strength from our different perspectives, disciplines and personal backgrounds. For these reasons, diversity and inclusion are among the core values of the DGHI community, and we are steadfastly committed to fostering these values within our community.

Our collective success depends on the robust exchange of ideas—an exchange that is best when the rich diversity of our perspectives, backgrounds and experiences flourishes.
