TRIBE - TriHealth Resource Initiative for Black Employees

TRIBE is an employee resource group (ERG) that brings people together to help increase awareness of our rich culture through special events celebrating history and heritage and developing leaders.

TRIBE’s mission is to promote and support TriHealth’s ongoing efforts to foster a culturally competent and inclusive work environment for team members who identify as Black, African, African American, and Caribbean. We will pursue this mission by maximizing the potential of team members within the organization.

Areas of Focus for TRIBE

This group focuses on specific organizational issues impacting African American team members and patients. It promotes the recruitment, retention and career mobility of Black, African, African American, and Caribbean while helping to enhance a positive patient experience for all.

Presence in the Community

TRIBE will be active in the community we serve, by volunteering time to local events and functions and fostering strategies for engagement for underserved communities in the Greater Cincinnati area.

"Diversity is the key to a thriving system. It includes the recognition, acceptance, and celebration of each individuals’ unique qualities. It is realizing that the differences don’t detract from the whole but are the ingredients that bring balance, beauty, strength, and resilience to the system."
Dr. Rochelle Buckley

"It is my fervent belief that in order for TriHealth to meet the needs of a racially and ethnically diverse population, we must both recognize and celebrate the value of an equally diverse workforce. TRIBE offers a platform for its members to maximize their professional development while receiving the vital support needed to optimally function within an organization re-committed to Diversity, equity, and inclusion."
