Dr. Adedimeji was appointed Associate Director for DEI in December 2021, and in this senior leadership role, he directs all Montefiore Einstein Cancer Center initiatives to enhance diversity, equity and inclusivity. He works closely with the DEI Committee as well as with the Associate Directors for Community Outreach and Engagement (COE), Cancer Research Training and Education Coordination (CRTEC), Catchment Area Research (CAR) and Clinical Affairs. Together they collaborate with resources from Montefiore’s Human Resources DEI Division, Office of Community and Population Health (OCPH) and Einstein’s Office of the Senior Associate Dean for Diversity and Inclusion. In addition, the DEI Associate Director leverages other departments and groups within Montefiore Einstein to increase participation among underrepresented groups throughout our Cancer Center.
