Capitalizing on unique talents and strengths
Each person brings uniqueness and strengths to the organization; therefore, "Novant Health will accelerate and sustain the remarkable patient experience by leveraging diversity and inclusion."
The following groups help the organization consistently advance this vision.
Executive Diversity Council (EDC)
The EDC is chaired by Novant Health's CEO. The EDC champions and drives diversity and inclusion to accelerate and sustain the remarkable patient experience.
System Diversity Council (SDC)
the SDC is responsible for coordinating Novant Health's overall diversity and inclusion process. The Council reviews major strategies and proposes and recommends significant policy changes to the EDC. The role of the SDC is to consult, generate ideas, and serve as a liaison between the EDC and Functional Diversity Action Committees (DAC) and the Business Resource Groups (BRGs).
Functional Diversity Action Committee (DAC)
The DAC is a six-pronged approach to diversity that supports a diverse customer base and a world class organization. The Functional DACs serve as think tanks to help the entire healthcare system leverage diversity to achieve Novant Health's care mission and to promote health equality and an organization that treats all our stakeholders with dignity and respect. They guide and coordinate diversity strategy across functions to ensure activities are aligned with business strategy, objectives and priorities.
Business Resource Groups (BRGs)
The BRGs are employee-driven. They serve as resources to the Functional DACs. They assist Novant Health in being the provider of choice and to sustain a welcoming environment that supports diversity and inclusion of people from various backgrounds.
