Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion


Our Commitment to Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

At Rady Children’s, we believe that every child deserves access to equitable healthcare, regardless of their background or circumstances. With this in mind, it is critical that diversity, equity, and inclusion is the foundation to everything we do. Our Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion works closely with departments across the organization to reinforce health equity and create an environment where all patients, families, and staff feel empowered and supported in their unique identities and experiences. To learn more about our initiatives and ongoing efforts, check out our 2023 DEI Report and explore our page below.

“Every story, experience, and idea helps shape Rady Children’s DEI strategy as we work to ensure that our team members, patients, and community feel respected, valued, and supported.”

Building Community Through Our Team Resource Groups

Our Team Resource Groups (TRGs) are culture-builders that provide members with a platform and visibility, create a sense of community, and drive change toward advancing DEI throughout Rady Children’s. These groups serve as the heartbeat of our organization, fostering connections among employees from diverse backgrounds and experiences.

By offering a platform for dialogue, collaboration, and collective action, TRGs empower members to not only advocate for their own needs but also champion broader initiatives that promote equity and inclusion for all.
