Diversity, equity and inclusivity are just the beginning. At Ascension, we embrace all perspectives and welcome diverse individuals. Explore our commitment to removing barriers and creating equal opportunities for our associates through listening, appreciation, building connections and much more. Each of us – in any role and stage of our career – plays a part in this important work.

Our commitment to diversity in the workplace

We’re committed to creating environments that are affirming, welcoming and inclusive for our patients and caregivers. Across our national network, a volunteer council leads our strategy to continue aligning our culture with five essential behaviors (ABIDE) to drive tangible change.
Appreciation Cultivating a culture of appreciation by recognizing each other's contributions, celebrating unique backgrounds and expressing gratitude.
Belongingness Creating a sense of belongingness through building connections, interrupting bias and learning what causes separation.
Inclusivity Welcoming all individuals to serve by acknowledging varying perspectives, understanding how experiences shape our decisions and encouraging collaboration.
Diversity Strengthening our teams and reflecting the communities we serve by celebrating our differences.
Equity Striving for fairness and justice by removing barriers, providing equal opportunities and advocating for the most vulnerable members of our society.

Our culture of inclusion starts with you

Career Growth We encourage a vibrant workforce by empowering our associates to grow their careers. All associates have access to career coaches, learning opportunities and professional development programs. 
Benefits & Perks Our comprehensive benefits are designed to support the needs of you and your family. At Ascension, your medical insurance premium is based on your annual base pay to ensure you have access to affordable care.
Associate Well-Being We provide resources that support associates’ mental, spiritual and physical well-being. At Ascension, you can bring your whole self to work and experience an environment that supports your work-life balance.

"As a council, we help to create and implement initiatives that help drive an inclusive culture. It’s rewarding to be a part of something much bigger than one’s self, because our work not only impacts our associates and entire our organization, but also our patients and the communities in which we live and serve."
