Mission
To create a Moffitt culture of diversity and inclusion as we strive to contribute to the prevention and cure of cancer.

Vision
Moffitt Cancer Center is recognized as the model wherein the diversity of our employees and communities is valued and supported as essential components to contributing to the prevention and cure of cancer. 

The cancer center is an equal opportunity employer. It is the policy of the cancer center to prohibit unlawful discrimination and harassment of any type and to afford equal employment opportunities to workforce members and applicants, regardless of race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, national origin, age, marital status, disability, genetic information, veteran’s status or any other characteristic protected by federal, state or local law.

Diversity is a priority at Moffitt and is meant "to promote a culture of diversity and inclusion as we contribute to the prevention and cure of cancer." Moffitt Diversity, Equity and Inclusion focuses its efforts on eliminating those obstacles to an individual’s ability to exist within their personal comfort zone at the Cancer Center. Everyone is important to meeting this priority. Addressing and responding to diversity and inclusion fosters an environment where mutual respect for diverse cultures, communication styles, languages, customs, beliefs, values, traditions, experiences and other ways in which we identify ourselves, is the expectation.

Moffitt Diversity, Equity and Inclusion employs two key strategies to meet the goal of increasing access to care:

  • Enhance Moffitt's image among underserved communities as an organization delivering cultural and linguistically competent care through prevention education and mutually beneficial partnerships
  • Serve as a resource, as well as, to identify opportunities to increase Moffitt’s preparedness when serving diverse communities
