Committed to diversity, equity and inclusion
Geisinger has long recognized the value of — and embraced — diversity. We want our patients, members, employees and students to bring their most authentic selves wherever they go. We’re committed to:
- Putting respect and inclusion at the center of all we do
- Promoting diversity in the workplace and in leadership
- Offering cross-cultural training to help eliminate health disparities and provide the best care for every patient, every time
Diversity encompasses much more than gender, race and ethnic background. It includes cultural beliefs, religion, sexual orientation, age, size, physical and mental ability, social and economic status and diversity of thought. All these factors may influence people’s expectations, needs and preferences for their own health practices and the care we offer.
