Driving Change at Envision and in Healthcare

Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

We welcome team members of every background and work in communities that reflect the racial, ethnic, sexual orientation and economic diversity of our country. Because of this, we can and must do more to create a more diverse, equitable and inclusive organization.

Diversity includes all the ways in which people differ, encompassing the different characteristics that make one individual or group different from another.

Equity is the fair treatment, access, opportunity and advancement for all people, while at the same time striving to identify and eliminate barriers that have prevented the full participation of some groups.

Inclusion is the act of creating environments in which any individual or group can be and feel welcomed, respected, supported and valued to fully participate.

Advisory Council

At Envision, we are focused on four primary areas to build and advance a more diverse, equitable and inclusive environment. Each area is led by a team of committed employees. The focus areas are as follows:

Employee recruitment, engagement, development and advancement (REDA)

Creating a supportive environment for team members and patients

Developing awareness of diverse groups

Improving our communities and society

Advancing these principles requires accountability and leadership across our entire organization. Envision’s DEI efforts are led by members of our executive team, guided by a diverse advisory council from across the organization, all managed by a dedicated DEI Program Director.
