Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

At ERA we are unwavering in our commitment to fostering a culture that champions Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI). We firmly believe in the power of action and recognize that our actions today shape a future of inclusivity and equality. Our dedication to DEI extends to every aspect of our organization, our team members, and the communities we serve.

Action-Oriented Commitment to DEI

We are dedicated to actively promoting and upholding DEI within our organization now and for generations to come. We acknowledge the systemic disparities and biases that persist in our society, and we are resolved to challenge and address these issues at their core. We understand that lasting change requires sustained effort, and we commit to taking proactive steps to ensure a more inclusive and equitable future.

Commitment to an Inclusive and Equitable Organizational Culture

We wholeheartedly commit to cultivating an organizational culture that values and respects the uniqueness of every individual. We strive to create an inclusive environment where diversity is celebrated and where every staff member feels supported, respected, and empowered to contribute their diverse perspectives. Our dedication to equity extends to the care we provide, ensuring that every patient is treated with fairness, compassion, and understanding, regardless of their background, identity, or circumstance.

Steps to Ensure Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion:

  • Education and Awareness: We continue to invest in ongoing education and training programs to increase awareness and understanding of DEI issues, unconscious biases, and cultural competence among our staff and stakeholders.
  • Inclusive Hiring and Retention Practices: We continue to implement strategies to attract, hire, and retain a diverse workforce, including setting measurable goals, conducting inclusive recruitment practices, and providing opportunities for professional growth for underrepresented groups.
  • Equitable Policies and Procedures: We continue to review and revise our policies, procedures, and practices to ensure they are equitable and inclusive. We will actively address any disparities that arise and work to eliminate them.
  • Community Engagement: We continue to actively engage with and contribute to the communities we serve to better understand their unique needs, concerns, and aspirations. We will support community initiatives that promote diversity, equity, and inclusion.
  • Accountability and Transparency: We continue establish measurable metrics to track our progress and regularly report on our DEI initiatives. We are committed to holding ourselves accountable and continually striving to improve our efforts.
  • Through these actions, we aspire to foster a diverse, equitable, and inclusive organization that reflects the richness of the world around us. We firmly believe that embracing DEI is fundamental to our mission of improving lives and ensuring the well-being of all.
