Post this “WE WELCOME” graphic to affirm our commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion.

Departments, offices and other groups at the School of Medicine are encouraged to post official “WE WELCOME” posters and graphics in their physical spaces and on their websites.

The poster was developed in collaboration with the Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion. It boldly states that Washington University School of Medicine welcomes people of all races, ethnicities, religions, countries of origin, sexual orientations, genders, ages and abilities.

It is available in multiple sizes and formats.

Posters to print for your office, clinic or lab

The poster is available in multiple sizes with the Physicians or School of Medicine logo. Use the Physicians logo version if posting in a patient-facing environment.

Graphics for your website or social media feed
