Diversity, Equity and Inclusion
We’re w/you wherever you are
In 2019, Cone Health made the commitment to advance the work of diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI). Although swift, strategic action was required, we knew that work in this space wouldn’t happen overnight. As a health care organization, we care for people of all different backgrounds, races, ethnicities, beliefs and more. We promise to be “right here with” all those we serve, which means that no one is discounted. That promise extends to our team members, and we keep it by examining our policies, practices and processes to make sure our team members feel respected, accepted and valued, and they know that they belong. The commitment we make to our more than 13,000 team members ultimately impacts the lives and health outcomes for our patients and the community.
We envision a Cone Health where everyone can show up authentically and know that they belong here. The race toward this vision is a marathon and not a sprint, and we are right here with each other every step of the way. Our DEI Strategy is a collaborative effort. We need everyone in every department to be a part of this great work to make diversity, equity and inclusion our way of being. Let’s build the best Cone Health together!
Diversity, Equity and Inclusion at Cone Health
Cone Health’s DEI strategy only succeeds if everyone feels respected and heard. That means all of our 13,000-plus team members and each and every person who comes to us for care. To start this process of ensuring Diversity, Equity and Inclusion is part of all we do, Cone Health created spaces for respectful dialogue. Building on that foundation, our intention now is to take our DEI commitment to the next level so that changes are visible and sustainable. Together we can continue to ensure Cone Health is a special place that celebrates the uniqueness of our community.
