The University of Washington Genetic Counseling Graduate Program (UW GCGP) is committed to identifying, dismantling, and replacing racist behaviors, systems, and policies within ourselves and our program. We recognize that racism is institutionalized in the United States, including in health care and higher education. We are committed to making the UW GCGP a place where students, faculty, staff, and fieldwork supervisors who are Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) are welcomed, feel comfortable, and can advance and thrive.
