Diversity and Inclusion Advisory Council (DIAC)
Ensuring diversity and inclusion initiatives are woven into the organizational strategy, Children’s Health℠ established the D&I Advisory Council (DIAC) in 2017. This council includes Executives and Senior Vice Presidents committed to advancing diversity and inclusion within their specific job functions. The DIAC provides oversight and governance of D&I programs and initiatives.
In the years since the formation of the DIAC, Children's Health has fostered several collaborative workgroups, all committed to advancing D&I and creating an inclusive workplace. These groups include Children's Health employees who volunteer their time. Each employee workgroup is sponsored by an Executive or Senior Vice President and include committees or task forces focused on specific issue.
Any Children’s Health team member can join one of our employee workgroups. All are welcome to contribute to these change-making teams.
