Our Committment to Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging
Erie Family Health Centers believes that healthcare is a human right. We acknowledge the deep history of systemic oppression, racism, and discrimination that plagues our communities. We recognize that historically marginalized groups have long been denied access to quality healthcare, education and employment opportunities which has led to devastating health disparities.
Erie is committed to confronting these inequities, challenging ourselves to work with excellence and humility, and keeping ourselves open to critical conversations that encourage learning, progress, and change.
We seek an organizational culture where the dignity and worth of each of our patients, staff, learners, and community partners are honored, and value is seen in everyone’s unique differences. We pledge to continually explore and advance the values of diversity, equity and inclusion across all levels of Erie Family Health Centers in alignment with Erie’s mission, vision and values.
Erie believes that building diverse teams is essential to meet the healthcare needs of an increasingly diverse patient population, and we are committed to hiring from within the communities we serve. We encourage candidates from all races, ethnicities, nationalities, abilities and gender identities–particularly those who have historically been marginalized in healthcare–to apply to join the Erie team.
We champion a team who will bring their unique differences and authentic selves–and consequently their wide-ranging perspectives, influential life experiences, and innovative approaches–to our clinical, operations and learning settings.
Our ongoing efforts include:
Staff Guided DEIB Action Plan
Our DEI Committee meets regularly to guide Erie's DEIB action plan. The committee’s focus areas are: Community and Culture, Communication and Change Management, Policies and Procedures, Patients and Services.
Employee Resource Groups (ERGs)
Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) connect team members who share common backgrounds or interests. They provide personal and professional development through mentoring, events volunteerism and community involvement.
Erie currently hosts three active ERGs, the Erie Black ERG, the Erie Queer/LGBTQIA+ ERG, and the Erie Disabilities ERG.
DEIB Education and Advocacy
DEIB Training: All new Erie team members are required to participate in DEI Training, with the goal to develop a shared language for and understanding of DEI core concepts and key terminology.
Town Halls: Erie regularly invites all team members to virtual Town Halls. These optional sessions make space for people to process and respond to current internal and external events.
The Nourish Series: This monthly series of educational webinars for Erie staff led by external experts covers a variety of health equity-related topics.
