DIVERSITY, EQUITY, AND INCLUSION RESOURCES BY STAKEHOLDER GROUP
The Washington Health Alliance (Alliance) is committed to becoming an inclusive and anti-racist organization. We pledge to create an environment where all employees and members, regardless of skin color, culture, ethnic origin, gender, sexual orientation, ability, or age, feel valued and have opportunities for growth. We commit to identify, discuss, expose and challenge inequities, including structural racism, in healthcare systems across Washington.
As part of this commitment, the Alliance is providing this curated list of suggestions from our members and staff that may support you and your organization’s efforts to address inequities and racism. If you have suggestions or additions, please send them to Alliance Senior Communications Manager Nicholas Rondinone.
