At City of Hope, diversity and inclusion is a core value at the heart of our mission. It is an integral part of who we are as an institution, how we operate and how we see our future.
About City of Hope
Founded in 1913, City of Hope is a National Cancer Institute-designated comprehensive cancer center and a founding member of the National Comprehensive Cancer Network, making it a national leader in advancing research and treatment protocols. City of Hope has been ranked among the nation’s “Best Hospitals” in cancer by US News & World Report for over a decade.
City of Hope is a community of people characterized by our diversity of thought, background, and approach, and tied together by our commitment to care for and cure those with cancer and other life-threatening diseases. The innovation that our inclusion and diversity produce in the areas of research, treatment, philanthropy, and education has made us national leaders in this fight.
