NEW YORK, (August 6, 2021) – Caroline Barrett, SanovaWorks Vice President of Operations
The SanovaWorks Executive Team is proud to publish our first-ever Equity, Diversity, & Inclusion (EDI) statement:
The Sum of Our Differences is Greatness
At SanovaWorks our greatest asset is our team.
They are the foundation of what we produce and how.
We support our team by embracing diversity, embodying the spirit of inclusion, and championing equity.
We celebrate our lived experiences.
We believe diversity propels innovation.
We are dedicated to growing our diversity.
We pledge to be an inclusive and safe workplace.
We acknowledge inclusion is a shared responsibility.
We hold ourselves accountable with an annual EDI report and plan of action.
We are on a journey to creating an equitable workplace, to build a more equitable world for all.
We realize the power we wield as a business and educational provider, in an industry experiencing systemic racism and implicit biases, resulting in disparities in healthcare. Stating and demonstrating our support of an equitable and inclusive world reveals to our clients, vendors, and employees what we believe. In doing so, we aim to expeditiously grow the movement. We identify ourselves as a resource and an advocate, not just an ally, and we encourage others in solidarity to join us.
Part of the EDI statement is that SanovaWorks publish an EDI report and plan of action, redefining our commitment to Equity, Diversity & Inclusion as more than a pledge – but a playbook.
Putting together the 2020 report and 2021 outlook was no easy task. The research, the assessment, the brainstorming –it was an involved process. We are thankful to those who participated in the journey, including our EDI consultants, OP-N Door Communications and Future Focus Training & Consulting, who led intensive leadership training for SanovaWorks’ executive team; our internal team members, who are the driving change-makers; and our healthcare partners, who whose perspective helps to inform much of advocacy.
We are humbled yet encouraged that change is in our hands.
