ZSFG Equity Resources

Advancing our True North Goal of equity at ZSFG.

Advancing Equity at ZSFG

Located at Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital and Trauma Center, ZSFG Library is open to the public. We provide research support, point-of-care tools, and a community-focused hub for all employees at ZSFG.

Equity is a priority at ZSFG, from our patient care to the way we interact with our colleagues. This guide provides tools and resources, curated by Clinical Research Librarians Jill Barr-Walker and Nora Franco, in order for ZSFG staff to engage with concepts around equity.

Equity as True North Goal

Our True North, depicted below, defines our Vision, Mission, Values and Goals. It is an illustration of who we are and what guides us, the ZSFG Way. This guide specifically focuses on the Equity piece of the pyramid and how to take advantage of the resources available to you.
