Guiding principles for diversity, inclusion and cultural competence
In 2016, Children’s Health℠ underscored its commitment to diversity and inclusion by introducing D&I initiatives into the overarching organizational strategy. The senior leadership team also acknowledged that in pursuit of diversity, inclusion and cultural competence, we needed to be guided by bedrock principles. Aligned with the Children’s Health core values, the principles inform how we interact with each other and with the communities we serve.
