A Message from the Co-Chairs of the Council for Inclusion & Diversity
It is an exciting time to be at Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center. As we work to fulfill our mission of improving the health of our region, state and nation, we do so recognizing the broad diversity of the people we serve. A key to our success rests on our ability to build an organization that is open to the richness that diversity brings and welcomes everyone engaged in our mission to contribute with their varied talents and perspectives. Honoring diversity among the members of the organization and providing a welcoming place where all are included creates a rich culture that makes this an incredible place to work. And just as importantly, it enhances our effectiveness in meeting the needs of our patients and the communities we serve.
We are extremely proud and honored to be the leaders of the Council. We are proud of its dedicated members and committed to its purpose.
