Seek out and partner with existing pipeline efforts within the University.
Pennsylvania (PA): The Office of Diversity and
Inclusion provides a high level of institutional support within the
department at Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh (CHOP), and makes a
concerted effort to reach out personally to prospective
employees/trainees from ethnic
and racial backgrounds that have been underrepresented among health
care professionals. HR representatives attend career fairs and, notably
post-graduate recruiting, they attend professional organizations'
annual conventions where they have the opportunity to speak personally
LEND fellows. LEND and the CHOP Office of Diversity & Inclusion
produced a recruitment brochure for prospective LEND trainees
highlighting our mission to serve
historically underserved minority children and families.
Establish partnerships with national organizations representing the
direct support professional (DSP) community to develop a pipeline and
career path for
DSPs into disability careers and UCEDD/LEND programs.
