What diversity and inclusion mean at Cardinal Innovations

Our employees reflect the diversity of our members, and each employee is responsible for creating and maintaining an environment of mutual respect and support.

We value different perspectives and understand that when we leverage the diverse thinking, skills, experience and working styles of our employees and other stakeholders, we will have the greatest success in promoting both individual and organizational growth.

We believe in creating a safe space where individuals can safely speak up and express their authentic self. Discrimination based on age, generation, gender identification, sexual orientation, race, national or ethnic origin, religion, language, political beliefs, and mental and physical abilities is not tolerated.

Our employees learn and work better when they interact with others who are not like themselves. Innovation occurs more rapidly when we draw on the diverse perspectives, skills and experience of others.

We believe that culturally competent organizations have improved health outcomes, increased respect and mutual understanding, and increased participation from the local community.

Our policies are clear and equitable: suitability for employment, promotions, transfers, demotions, and wages is determined only by an individual's ability to perform the job.

By embracing diversity in our communities, we develop collaborative, sustainable relationships with our colleagues, our members, and our local community stakeholders.

Our core values of Courage, Integrity, Accountability, Compassion and Pioneering underpin our Commitment to ensuring that the value of cultural competency is upheld in all that we do.
