Our Office of Diversity, Inclusion, Equity & Belonging
The Office of the Diversity, Inclusion, Equity & Belonging leads our enterprise health equity strategy for CommonSpirit by:
- Promoting a workforce that represents the diversity of our patients, families, and communities;
- Curating an organizational environment and culture of equity, inclusion and belonging for all;
- Ensuring health equity is embedded across our sites of care and provision of services for our patients & families and the communities we serve
- Pioneering a network of social innovation partnerships that advances access and equity throughout the communities we serve
- Advocating for meaningful engagement and policies to advance social justice and cultivate healthy multicultural communities; and
- Removing barriers through economic empowerment while addressing systemic racism in how we partner with others, conduct business, and lead the health care industry.
Our Office will achieve these objectives in coordination with the functional areas who drive health and health equity by embedding health equity initiatives, programs, and best practices across our ministry, using our voice in every way to engage communities we serve to tell our stories and promote policies for equity for all, and through courageously holding ourselves and others accountable to remove barriers to racial justice thereby creating pathways to lead the nation in health equity.
Our pledge of humankindness.
"As a member of the LGBTQA community, I can say that this organization has allowed me to be "me" without worry..."
"In our inclusive spaces, we’re encouraged to listen to each other’s worldview and share our cultural backgrounds to be our authentic selves."
"The culture of humankindness not only applies to our patient care, but also to our common practice among our peers."
"It is extremely satisfying to work with a team that wants to be engaged in meaningful work and serves a higher purpose."

ALL IN SUPPORT OF OUR COMMITMENT TO ADVANCE HEALTH EQUITY
A more just health system
We believe everyone has the right to be healthy. We know our health shouldn’t depend on our zip code or the color of our skin. Together we can create a more equitable health system that improves physical, social and mental health for everyone.
A healthier future for all
To improve health for all, we have to focus on what's happening to people before they come to us for care. Given the size and diversity of our system, we are a laboratory for community health improvement.
