Our Focus on Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

As a critical community resource, Connecticut Children’s must ensure that our team members, patients and their families, and community partners all feel welcome and respected here. Our Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Framework will guide our efforts along this journey going forward as we strengthen our culture to become more inclusive. The Framework is designed to foster improvements in every aspect of our organization, including reducing healthcare inequities, building a more diverse workforce, and providing team members with education and training on racism and unconscious bias.

As part of our diversity, equity and inclusion journey, our divisions and programs are working on plans to strengthen their office cultures. The Pathways to Action Project developed by Connecticut Children’s Office for Community Child Health serves as one of many examples of transformative work going on across our organization under this strategic framework.

As an organization, Connecticut Children’s is also committed to raising awareness about diversity, equity and inclusion beyond our health system. One of the ways in which we do this is by publishing articles on Connecticut Children’s Growing Healthy Blog and Connecticut Children’s Office for Community Child Health’s Advancing Kids Blog.
