Health Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Commission (HEDIC)
Employees play important role in diversity and inclusion and health equity journey
The Health Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Commission (HEDIC) seeks to promote an environment in which our patients and their families, providers and team members can heal, thrive, and achieve their greatest potential.
Today, over 100 members serve on this commission and are influencing culture and change across Children’s Health℠ by supporting D&I and health equity projects.
In addition to supporting the first D&I Impact Report, the committee has undertaken a number of important activities to promote culturally effective and equitable care, within a diverse and inclusive environment. Those efforts include:
- An ongoing review of Children’s Health Policies and Practices to ensure our policies and language are inclusive and non-biased.
- Refreshing our internal web page devoted to D&I as well as our Children’s Health career site.
- Completion of the National Diversity Council (NDC) Index, a measurement of organizational commitment to diversity and inclusion among companies.
- Developing a cohort of diverse speakers for panels and forums to articulate our commitment to diversity and inclusion.
"All of us on the Health Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Commission aspire to make Children’s Health work for everyone.”
