Diversity at Ascension Health
Ascension Health is committed to promoting a culture that will attract and retain talented individuals from all types of communities. Diversity is central both to our Catholic identity and to our core values.
Our Mission, Vision, and Values call us to respect and compassion for the diversity and dignity of life. In everything that Ascension Health stands for, it is clear that diversity is not only something we should embrace, it is something we need so we are consistent with who we truly are and what we should become. To stand in genuine solidarity with every person in our society, we must strive to enrich our own corporate culture with individuals who make up the diversity of the communities we serve.
In addition, building a diverse workforce makes sound business sense on several levels.
- By introducing new ideas, perspectives and approaches into our organization, we can improve our effectiveness and strengthen our operations.
- A diverse workforce improves and cultivates workplace relations, which, in turn, makes this a better place to work for all of our associates.
- Diversity is the reality of the communities we serve. We believe we can do a better job in our communities if we have associates and leadership that are reflective of that diverse mix.
Ascension Health is extending its reach in finding a diverse pool of talent. Diversity is not limited to ethnic background - it includes reaching out to both genders, people with disabilities, younger and older people and those who may have different viewpoints and opinions. At Ascension Health, diversity is about reaching out to talented individuals that contribute new viewpoints to our organization.
