Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Committee Members

The Department of Pediatrics is committed to creating a diverse environment for faculty, fellows, residents, staff and students. 

A primary lever in this work is our Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Committee, which is comprised of representatives from faculty and staff across the Department of Pediatrics and supporting communities. This committee seeks to promote the recruitment, retention, professional excellence and the overall well-being of individuals and teams who reflect the diversity that is Pediatrics. Members of the committee are also entrusted with leadership in facilitating open and safe discourse within our academic and medical community that will help us grow the professional and cultural experience of the Department of Pediatrics.

For more information about our committee, please contact Brandi Freeman, MD, at brandi.freeman@childrenscolorado.org or Rhonda Buckner at rhonda.buckner@childrenscolorado.org​.
