The Center for the History of Medicine launched the Archives for Diversity and Inclusion, an expansion of the Archives for Women in Medicine, in October 2018. The program's goal is to ensure the Center's collections reflect the diversity of the Harvard Medical School community by acquiring the research, teaching, and professional records of underrepresented faculty, including women.

The Archives for Women in Medicine, 2005 to 2018, focused on collecting, sharing, and celebrating the achievements of women in medicine.

A guide to Archives for Women in Medicine collections is available.

Beyond collecting activities, the Archives for Diversity and Inclusion also offers tours, lectures, and events, and partners with the Women in Medicine Legacy Foundation to award an annual research fellowship.
