Brigham Health Diversity and Inclusion

Mission Statement

At Brigham and Women’s Hospital we aspire to be the care provider of choice for diverse patients and their families, and the employer of choice for diverse employees.

This requires an inclusive environment that values differences such as race, gender identity, ethnicity, language, sexual orientation, age, physical or mental ability, religion, income, and national origin. To achieve this, we provide education and promote policies and practices that support patients, their families and our employees.


To be a leader among hospitals by providing excellent healthcare for the diverse communities we serve.

One of the ways we demonstrate our commitment to Diversity and Inclusion at the Brigham is through the support of our Employee Resource Groups (ERGs).  At the Brigham, we currently have three active Employee Resource Groups:

The Association of Multicultural Member of Partners (AMMP) whose mission is commitment to the advancement, retention, recruitment, and development of multicultural professionals into leadership roles at all levels and areas of the Partners organization.

Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) & Allies whose mission is to create a welcoming and affirming environment for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) employees, patients, families and friends.

The Young Professionals (YP) whose mission is to improve the recruitment, retention and engagement of "young" of earl-career professionals.
