Baystate is a recognized leader in promoting diversity within its clinical community. We strive to ensure that our workforce is inclusive, reflecting the diverse populations we serve. Together our strengths, experiences and thoughtful perspectives encourage innovation throughout our health system.
For example, Baystate Health’s Diversity Council is an internal body of employees who lead the overall integration of diversity and inclusion strategies and is focused on building a culturally competent organization.
We also support our employees through Employee Resource Groups—networks of and for employees, structured around traits that affect a person at home, work and in society—from gender, ethnicity and sexual orientation to generation or physical ability.
Diversity and cultural competence help us to better understand and serve the needs of our communities. In short, what makes us different is the bond that unites us. And it’s one more advantage that differentiates Baystate from other healthcare employers. We welcome you for who you are.
Testament to this is Baystate Health’s 2013 recognition by the Human Rights Campaign Foundation as a “Leader in LGBT Healthcare Equality” for the third consecutive year.
