DEI Report

Letter from our Chief People Officer

At Northern Light Health, our promise to the people of Maine, is that we will make healthcare work for you! We do this by fostering a culture of caring that begins with caring for one another and for the diverse needs of the people we serve. To be effective in this essential work, we must be an organization that promotes diversity, equity, and inclusion, and not just through meaningful dialogue, but also actionable steps to evolve and grow our culture. I am so very proud of all the work that my colleagues from across the system have done to improve our diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) culture through their words and actions. In the pages of this report, you can see those results and learn more about the many people of all backgrounds, races, religions, ages, abilities, and identities working together on this singular, important cause. I’d like to offer a heartfelt thank you to those who are contributing to this work each day: our employees, family members, and members of our communities. They include the members of our DEI councils across the system who meet regularly to provide their valued input into our policy improvements. They are the colleagues who everyday are supporting diversity through simple but meaningful actions and allyship to show caring and support for one another! Thank you for your continued interest and support.
