Cultural Inclusion & Diversity
Creating a culturally inclusive, diverse and equitable workplace and industry is not only the right thing to do — it is pivotal in fostering greater creativity, innovation and connection to each other and within our workplaces, healthcare industry, and communities in which we live.Diversity celebrates the various dimensions of identity and experience that make us unique, while inclusion refers to the intentional act of leveraging diversity to reap the benefits of working together despite our differences. PWH is proud of the work our leaders and corporate partners are doing to create a culturally inclusive healthcare industry equally led by women.
Our goal is to educate, advocate, empower, and provide resources and tools to collectively create and sustain an environment that is inclusive, equitable and diverse for everyone.The resources on this page will help you advance your knowledge, insight and advocacy of diversity, equity and inclusion (DE&I) no matter where you are on the journey.
