Diversity
& Inclusion

As Children’s employees, we share a common purpose. ​​​​​​​Yet we celebrate our differences. Because we know that what makes us unique, makes us great.

Our Workplace Welcomes All

Our Statement on Diversity
Children’s welcomes and appreciates everyone, regardless of gender or gender identity, age, race, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, sexual orientation, political affiliation, religion, health status or family composition. Our goal is to be a place where people feel valued for their professional and personal contributions, and to be a model for standing against discrimination, and standing for diversity and inclusion.

We demonstrate our commitment to diversity in our employment policies and practices, training programs, benefits, recruitment and in how we communicate—because we firmly believe everyone deserves the right to be seen, heard and respected in an organization free of discrimination.

We will deliver the same high level of service and respect to each of our patients and their families throughout our communities. We will enhance the lives of the children we serve by ensuring that every child and every family feels welcomed, valued and understood in our trusted and caring environment.
