Joan Y. Reede, is the Dean for Diversity and Community Partnership at Harvard Medical School (HMS) as well as Professor of Medicine, and the Director of the Office for Diversity Inclusion and Community Partnership. Her primary focus is workforce, mentoring and leadership development in the biomedical sciences and health policy. Towards that end, she has designed, developed, directed, and continues to lead a multi-faceted portfolio of innovative programs that support and shape the career development of faculty, trainees and students. 

A native New Englander, Dr. Reede graduated from Brown University. She received her MD from the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai in New York City. Dr. Reede completed an internship and a residency in pediatrics at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, and a fellowship in child psychiatry at Boston Children's Hospital. Although the work of the Office of Diversity Inclusion and Community Partnership concentrates on faculty, trainees, students and staff, Dr. Reede’s on-going commitment to children is demonstrated in the pipeline programs she created that are specifically geared towards young people such as Reflection in Action: Building Healthy Communities™ and Project Success for middle school and high school students respectively.

In her role as Dean, Dr. Reede expanded the number of programs at HMS that encourage and assist minorities, women, LGBT and disabled individuals to develop scientific careers. Some of these programs are under the umbrella of the DICP, and others are the result of the partnerships she has built in and around Harvard University and with outside organizations. Dr. Reede’s knowledge and tireless work diversifying the medical workforce has not been unnoticed. She has served on a number of federal and national committees and task forces. As a recognized expert, she is a sought after as a speaker for national and international meetings.
