Diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging at USP: Empowering a healthier tomorrow
USP aspires to be a diverse, inclusive, innovative, and engaging organization that empowers and engages staff and volunteers to contribute to its mission to improve global health. We are committed to creating a culture where every employee feels fully empowered and valued irrespective of, but not limited to, personality, race, ethnicity, physical and mental abilities, education, religion, gender identity and expression, life experience, sexual orientation, country of origin, regional differences, work experience, family status, and where they can contribute their full potential to accomplish our mission.
Our focus on Diversity, Equity and Inclusion is intentional and designed to build a sense of true Belonging. USP’s Office of Organizational Culture, Equity & Inclusive Excellence works across the organization to ensure global staff and volunteers are equipped to understand, embrace, and integrate the principles of diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging to achieve USP’s mission (in a way relevant to their role, function, and business processes). Additionally, USP’s vibrant Affinity Network, comprised of 11 affinity groups globally, helps drive inclusion and belonging at USP by creating a safe space for support, sharing, connection, and professional development. This network works towards increasing staff member engagement, retention and fostering a more inclusive work environment.
