Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

Diversity, Equity and Inclusion 

For our industry’s success, and the good of those we serve, we are committed to strengthening more inclusive cultures throughout the international reach of our network.

Aligned with our mission to “inspire global collaboration to improve health care,” this DEI initiative aims to bring together health care companies,  health care service firms, individual health care professionals and regional stakeholders. The collective engagement of this group is poised to enhance organizations and deliver better patient care.

Much of our most meaningful work is facilitated by assembling leaders and disseminating information. By coming together in this, member organizations are building a stronger international health care environment. Diversity, equity and inclusion are imperative for the vitality of the communities we serve – and critical to the success of our industry. Beyond being the right thing to do. 

As health care leaders, we are responsible for providing top-quality care to the communities we serve. Ensuring that our industry’s leadership and workforce are representative of our patient populations is crucial to our success.

Your help is needed as we answer the call to improve and strengthen our sector. Please join us—and inspire your colleagues and peers to get involved, as well.
