PRIDE in Healthcare Out and Ally List

Please consider joining the 2018-2019 OUT or ALLY List, maintained by PRIDE in Healthcare, by completing this Google form.
These lists are resources for LGBTQ+ students and allies to identify individuals who are committed to inclusiveness at UW. Students, faculty, and staff from any health professional program t the UW who wish to publicly advertise their status as a gender/sexual/romantic minority or ally have the option to join the lists. Joining either list indicates a pledge to model attitudes and behaviors that will foster inclusivity in your program. Presences or absence from the OUT LIST and ALLY LIST is a strictly personal decision. There is the option to be listed on the PRIDE in Healthcare bulletin board only, if you are concerned about privacy.
If you believe you are already on the list but are unsure, please feel free to resubmit the form. If you were previously on the list and wish for your name to be removed, please email and we will do so promptly. We aim to have lists updated on September 24th.
