Our Commitment to Diversity

Our passion for health equity unites us as an organization. We believe in the power of our unique differences and the impact we can make as we come together in our shared values and purpose.

We welcome you! We are building an organization we can be proud of where you can be your true self, utilize your talents and be heard. This is the power of inclusion and enables us to unlock the power of our differences and the potential of our teams.

We succeed by leveraging our differences to solve problems, create opportunities and be stronger together. We encourage, embrace, and value each of us for being our authentic selves.

Equity, inclusion and respect are cornerstones of our culture. At every level our organization reflects the diverse people we serve around the nation. Diversity does not only mean race. It includes race, ethnicity, gender, age, sexuality, religion, disability, socioeconomic status and neurodiversity. We are dedicated to building a thriving organization that welcomes and respects the diversity of different cultural backgrounds, talents, interests and ideas.

“We believe deeply that our unique and different lived experiences and perspectives are essential ingredients to building a strong Upequity that deeply understands and truly addresses the needs of those we serve.” – Kandyma Sar, Co-founder

Inclusion is built into our organizational practices from recruitment, development, promotion and leadership as well as embedded deeply in our core values. Representation is a continued commitment and one of the ways that we can measure ourselves.
