To meet internal and external stakeholder needs related to Diversity, Respect, Equity and Inclusion.
In 2013, Main Line Health formalized its commitment to Diversity, Respect, Equity and Inclusion by establishing a Diversity, Respect, Equity and Inclusion (DREI) Steering Committee with diversity councils and system-wide work groups focused on the following areas:
These workgroups are comprised of 250 employees from across the health system, who are diverse in ethnicity, gender, religion, sexuality, age and job function. Each group established a charter and DREI goals which were included in incentive plans. These work groups are required to provide updates on an annual basis at DREI Steering Committee meetings and meet regularly with their councils to continue to advance their DREI work. In 2020, the Anti-Racism collaborative commitments were added to the charter for existing DREI work groups and additional work groups were created to focus on policies/procedures and fostering positive community relations with law enforcement.
