Board Governance

The Inclusion and Diversity Committee will provide a mechanism for regular and direct involvement of the Board in overseeing inclusion and diversity related programs and functions at UPMC. The Committee serves as the inclusion and diversity policy advisor to the executive leadership of UPMC. The Committee approves the strategic direction and provides high-level advocacy to support implementation and progress of the UPMC Inclusion and Diversity Agenda designed to:

  1. Enhance the diversity and cultural competency skill-set of our employees.
  2. Provide culturally and linguistically competent care to improve the health status of our increasingly diverse patient and member population.
  3. Ensure the demographic of our workforce reflects the rich diversity represented in the community.
  4. Enrich the health status of those who live and work in the communities we serve.
  5. Create an inclusive workplace that supports employee engagement, collaboration, and professional development.
  6. Grow our patient population through effective market segmentation strategies that target the fastest growing segments of the region.
