Working toward health equity for all
We believe health is a human right. Every person deserves the chance to live their healthiest life. But we recognize that long-standing inequities and systemic injustices exist in the world. This has led to health disparities among communities that have been marginalized because of their race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, age, ability, religion or socioeconomic status.
Here’s how we’re working toward health equity for all.
"In today’s diverse and dynamic world, DEI is a smart business imperative for any major employer. But at the Providence family of organizations, it goes far deeper. As our value of dignity so poignantly reminds us: We encourage and celebrate the gifts in one another. We respect the inherent dignity and worth of every individual. We recognize each interaction as a sacred encounter."
- Rod Hochman, President and CEO of Providence
We offer many Caregiver Resource Groups and caregivers systemwide are taking action on a personal and/or regional level to drive change.
At Digital Innovation Group, a consumer-facing technology group within Providence, “DEI Discussions” empower caregivers to have hard conversations around race, sexuality, gender and other topics that they experience and that impact how they deliver their work.
One of the health equity programs in Alaska pairs trained Providence community health workers with vulnerable communities to create bridges to critical health and social services. Their goal is to remove or reduce issues caused by difference in language, culture, negative past experiences, transportation, lack of insurance and health literacy.
Together, our 120,000 caregivers (employees) serve in 52 hospitals, 1,085 clinics and a comprehensive range of health and social services across the western United States. With so many locations to choose from, it’s easy to find a role just for you.
