The past few years have been a wake-up call for many to the inequities, injustices and systems in place that create barriers for many people based on their race, ethnicity, background, beliefs, disability, gender, sexual orientation or gender identity.
During this time, our nation began to acknowledge the injustices that many have long endured, and we saw the global pandemic's more severe impact the most vulnerable members of our society. At University of Maryland Medical System (UMMS), we have been evaluating how we’re addressing equity, diversity and inclusion at all levels and locations of our organization. We have been having tough conversations, examining our policies and truly listening to our employees, patients and neighbors. As a result, we have developed a multi-year plan, backed by a $40 million investment, that outlines our commitment to equity in care delivery, diversity in our workforce, meaningful investments in local communities and expanded opportunities for minority-owned businesses.
