Who We Are

The Division of DEI  works to increase provider diversity and promote inclusivity within CSH. To achieve these goals, we conducted a survey to better understand the sociodemographic composition of our community.

 

Although the results of this first assessment are limited by a response rate of just 30%, these data provide an initial understanding of who we are as an organization as we strive to achieve greater diversity and inclusion.
