This morning, The Columbus Dispatch released a new article that highlights Equitas Health’s efforts in the past year to become a more anti-racist organization. Last year, the newspaper shed light on the trauma that many employees and former employees experienced while working here.
Today’s article mentions the investigation into allegations of racism that Lawrence & Bundy, an Atlanta law firm, conducted; the resignation of the former CEO; the expansion of our Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion; our pay equity audit; and more.
While the organization has made progress, we are still listening. We are grateful to our staff who remained faithful to our mission. Their dedication to serving our patients and clients over the past year strengthens our resolve to do this work — and do it right. We owe it to them to make Equitas Health an anti-racist organization where we care for each other as we care for all.
