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.

Erie Family Health Centers hires based on talent and values and believe in transferrable skills. We are committed to training all our team members and believe we all learn on the job. Erie is an equal-opportunity employer committed to the diversity of our workforce. We promote an inclusive work environment that fosters a culture of belonging for everyone.
