Ascension’s approach to diversity, inclusion and equity


As a Catholic health ministry, Ascension has a unique obligation and calling – reflected in our Mission – to advocate for a more just and compassionate society in words and actions. To help address racism and systemic injustice, Ascension has launched a justice-focused framework called ABIDE, built on the hallmarks of Appreciation – Belongingness – Inclusivity – Diversity – Equity. This effort encompasses a commitment to listen, pray, learn and act. Fostering a more inclusive culture and advocating for social justice can help provide more equitable employment opportunities while also helping to remedy healthcare disparities perpetuated by racism and systemic injustice.
