About Cincinnati Children's | Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

Our Commitment to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

Inherent in our vision of being the leader in improving child health is the inclusion of all children. Cincinnati Children’s understands that as our world and demographics change, so too must our understanding of health implications, the services we provide, and those who make up our organization. This means working to address factors such as social determinants of health and wellbeing. It means acknowledging racism and inequities as public health crises. And it means incorporating this information into the way we operate – seeing the diversity, cultural competence, and equity of our organization as instrumental in improving child health.

Cincinnati Children’s has been widely recognized as a leading pediatric healthcare institution in the nation and the world.  Such an achievement comes from, among other things, a focus on continuous improvement of ourselves and our organization, while also working to understand and prepare for what is to come. We know that our continued success depends on our ability and commitment to recognize and honor a diversity of needs both outside our walls – in our local community, our region, across the country, and around the world – as well as inside our organization – for our people, our teams, and our leaders.

At Cincinnati Children's, We Respect Everyone.

We are dedicated to ensuring every employee, patient, family, and visitor feels welcome and safe.

Together, we commit to:

  • Ending child health disparities
  • Advancing diversity, equity, and inclusion
  • Standing against racism
  • Creating an environment free of discrimination
  • Taking personal and institutional responsibility
