Inclusion, Diversity and Racial Equity
"I believe we should strive to reflect the communities we serve. Our culture must embrace all, treat all, employ all and see value in all." - Akram Boutros, MD, FACHE
How MetroHealth Defines Inclusion, Diversity and Equity
Inclusion: An organizational culture that connects each employee to the organization; encourages collaboration, flexibility and fairness; and leverages diversity throughout the organization, so that all individuals are able to participate and contribute to their full potential.
Diversity: Any dimension that can be used to differentiate groups and people from one another, including their race, ethnicity, language, culture, religion, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, socio-economic status, physical or mental ability or disability, and others.
Equity: is the guarantee of fair treatment, access, opportunity, and advancement for all people, while at the same time striving to identify and eliminate barriers that have prevented the full participation of some groups.
