Creating an Inclusive Environment During the Holiday Season

At UNC Health Care, we are One Great Team. We are building an inclusive and equitable culture that encourages and supports the diverse voices of our patients and each other.

We are committed to valuing all people throughout our organization, regardless of background, lifestyle, and culture. As we enjoy the holiday season, remember to respect the personal, religious, and cultural practices of our colleagues and patients.

Here are some helpful holiday celebration reminders:

  • Be respectful of those who celebrate different holidays than you or who do not celebrate any holiday.
  • Seek the input of your colleagues when planning department/unit holiday celebrations. 
  • Ensure attendance at holiday celebrations is voluntary. 
  • Consider learning about the unique traditions and significance of different holiday practices from your colleagues and patients.
