At TriHealth, we have 7 Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) that are responsible for projects pertaining to these three focus areas:
Education and Awareness - Promote and create educational opportunities and understanding of diversity and inclusion as a dynamic strategy for business success and community well-being.
Talent Management - Assist in creating opportunities to increase our talent pool with a highly skilled workforce that reflects diverse communities served by TriHealth.
Community Engagement - Engage staff and physicians and increase TriHealth’s presence in the community.
ERGs are groups of TriHealth team members who join together based on shared characteristics or life experiences. They serve as a resource for members and work to foster a diverse, inclusive workplace. Current ERGs are:
