The essence of true diversity enriches our overall experiences. At Moffitt Cancer Center, we seek to create and foster an environment where everyone can enter the doors and feel confident that they will receive the best state-of-the art, compassionate cancer care in the nation. This is why we continue to build and renew our commitment to promoting diversity and equity through our cancer care, research, education and employment. Our leadership believes that diversity and inclusion is paramount to achieving excellence and fulfilling our mission to "contribute to the prevention and cure of cancer."
Moffitt Diversity is charged with ensuring that the diverse communities and populations that comprise the fabric of the Cancer Center embrace our "Culture of Diversity." This commitment to diversity will enable Moffitt to sustain its reputation as one of the premiere cancer centers in the country. At Moffitt, diversity is not addressed as a separate entity, but woven into the overall fabric of the organization’s efforts.
I am extremely excited and optimistic about the future of Moffitt and the impact that our commitment to diversity will have on our employees, our community and our contribution to the prevention and cure of cancer. Max De Pree said it best: We need to give each other space to grow, to be ourselves, to exercise our diversity. We need to give each other space so that we may both give and receive such beautiful things as ideas, openness, dignity, joy, healing and inclusion.
We encourage you to explore the many opportunities to learn more about what we do and how it impacts the cancer center and the community.
