Diversity, Equity & Inclusion
The Sinai Chicago’s cultural model "Living the Values" supports creating a more inclusive culture that directly impacts our caregivers, patients, and our community.
At Sinai Chicago, diversity is a key component that drives the purpose of the organization. We are privileged to have a culturally-rich and diverse workforce and we are honored to serve, support, and provide services to a diverse community. With a diversity representation of >75%, it is clear that we respect and value the cultural differences among one another and we use that to leverage our effectiveness and organizational success.
Our Definition of Diversity
At Sinai Chicago, diversity is an all-inclusive concept. It includes differences among race, gender, age, national origin, ethnicity, disability, religion, culture, socio-economic status, sexual orientation and any other attributes that truly represent an individual or group. We understand that diversity is not only the obvious differences but the less apparent ones as well. Individual lifestyles, work/life balance, interpersonal styles, life experiences, talents, and creative passions are all factors that contribute to a person’s culture or identity.
Our Commitment to Diversity, Equity and Inclusion
As one of our brand actions, we embrace diversity and benefit from the diversity of possibilities it fosters. We are committed to creating and maintaining an inclusive environment in all of our decisions to ensure the best outcome for all stakeholders involved. We hold our leaders accountable for cultivating a workplace that respects, supports, and appreciates the uniqueness of all caregivers.
