Employee Resources Groups Initiative Launch

Beginning the week of March 18, employees at UNC Health Care-owned entities and at the UNC School of Medicine will be invited to take a survey and attend information sessions on Employee Resource Groups. The Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion is leading this initiative. The survey link and other information may be found here.

  • Employee Resource Groups are intended to connect employees who want to create a culture of inclusion that focuses on patient satisfaction, employee engagement, recruitment, and retention. The goal of this initiative is for such groups to bring their unique and inclusive perspectives to bear on a variety of employee and patient care matters, such as, addressing access issues for patient communities, building diverse candidate pools, cultural competency training, and celebrating our similarities and differences.
  • Employee Resource Groups may form around such common interests as military service, cultural background, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, generations, religious beliefs, disability status, or age.
