We know diversity is central to building an equitable and inclusive workplace—and that our caregivers and teams should reflect the diverse communities they serve. We strive to build a workplace where all caregivers feel heard, respected and valued.

Inclusive and varied perspectives help us deliver the highest quality care. Our goal is to recruit, develop and promote diverse talent across all levels and departments. We bring the best and brightest to Providence Swedish, prioritizing diversity in race, culture, gender identity or expression and sexual orientation, background, experience, talent and thought.

We don’t tolerate behavior that perpetuates bias or stereotypes. We strive to create an environment where all caregivers can experience a community of mutual respect and collegiality, knowing that diversity is valued. For example, our voluntary, employee-led Caregiver Resource Groups (CRGs) bring caregivers with similar backgrounds, interests, career goals and challenges together for networking and influencing change.
