Diversity and Inclusion Infrastructure

Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion Infrastructure

At the UPMC, diversity is how we achieve our mission and grow our business. Below are core groups the Center for Engagement and Inclusion work with to advance UPMC’s Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion Agenda.

UPMC Board Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Committee:

The Committee:

  • Enhances the diversity and cultural competency skill set of our employees.
  • Provides culturally and linguistically competent care to improve the health status of our increasingly diverse patient and member population.
  • Ensures the demographic of our workforce reflects the rich diversity represented in the community.
  • Enriches the health status of those who live and work in the communities we serve.
  • Creates an inclusive and equitable workplace that supports employee engagement, collaboration, and professional development.
  • Grows our patient population through effective market segmentation strategies that target the fastest growing segments of the region.

Supporting a Diverse Workplace

UPMC respects that talent and skill are not limited but enhanced by the diversity and cultural expertise staff brings to the workplace.

Having a diverse employee presence at all levels provides a wealth of benefits.

It ensures we have the knowledge, critical thinking, agility, and innovation required of a leading and forward-thinking integrated health care system.

UPMC Employee Resource Groups (ERGs)

ERGs are employees networks formed based on shared experiences. ERGs can serve as a forum for: engagement in business opportunities and challenges, input to improve employee, patient, health plan member, and community experience, and team building.

Other UPMC Center for Engagement and Inclusion Partners

The Center for Engagement and Inclusion brings together and works with a number of councils and committees. These groups are vital to our success at UPMC and in the communities we serve.
