Cultural Diversity

Cultural Diversity

We operate on the belief that a team of people with diverse backgrounds can produce better ideas, better service and a genuine competitive advantage. Our dedication to cultural diversity means we concentrate on our shared strengths, unique perspectives and rich interplay of ideas and skills. This enables us to connect with and serve patients from a wide spectrum of backgrounds.

Cultural Diversity

Opportunities For All

Our patient population and workforce reflect a mix of cultures, ages, religions and races which are understood and integrated in our organizational culture. And we want to support our employees in their desire for growth.

We provide access to a full-time, certified career counselor for all of our employees – in-person and online. Our career counseling services outlines plans for advancement in your chosen field and helps those who are interested in advanced education. An on-site school at work program is also offered, giving employees an opportunity to refresh or develop skills and to be better prepared as they pursue their formal education.

Recruitment and Community Outreach

In conjunction with community organizations such as IRIS, VA Hospital, Strive New Haven and Easter Seals, we provide opportunities to a diverse group within our community. We offer an annual minority scholarship program for local students planning to further their education in the fields of nursing or allied health. To foster our diversity outreach efforts, we attend annual career fairs at identified HBC colleges and universities.

Our dedication to cultural diversity in our community extends beyond outreach efforts. We partner with and support a wide-variety of causes including:

  • Local and State NAACP
  • Southern CT Black Nurses Association
  • The Urban League of Southern CT
  • Junta for Progressive Action
  • National Hispanic Heritage Organization
  • The Deaf MD foundation
  • The Jewish Community Center
  • Health Projects
  • The SARAH Foundation for Disabilities
  • Women and Family Health Center for Domestic Violence and Health Issues

Yale-New Haven Hospital has been recognized for our diversity efforts by AARP and as a recipient of the Eve Award. Learn more about the other areas in which we’ve been recognized by visiting our Recognition page.
