Diversity, equity & inclusion employee resources

Diversity, equity and inclusion efforts are most impactful when everyone is engaged in creating space for connection and belonging.

To foster a community of acceptance at UK HealthCare, we offer a variety of resources for our employees.

Crucial Conversations

This platform was designed to discuss social matters and critical events in a safe space. Topics have included police brutality, microaggressions and how we celebrate our differences.

Equity Ambassadors

The goal of the Equity Ambassadors program is to train our staff to be diversity champions who advocate for all people and patients. Through this program, UK HealthCare employees can become part of the work to move our DEI Strategic Plan forward.

Equity Ambassadors exist as a bridge among departments, the Enterprise DEI Council and organizational leadership. To learn more about this program please email ukhcequityambassadors@uky.edu.
