Health equity means achieving the highest level of health for all people. It ensures everyone has an equal opportunity for optimal health, regardless of race, ethnicity, disability, sexual orientation, gender identity, socioeconomic status, geography, preferred language, or other factors.
We invest in learning to help us understand and confront bias. We work to explore topics of diversity and create inclusive and supportive environments. We believe each of us can contribute to realizing more inclusive and collaborative workplaces.
Differences in health and health care between groups that stem from broader inequities are known as health and health care disparities. These disparities are often viewed through the lens of race and ethnicity, but they occur across a broad range of dimensions.
