The DHS Equity, Diversity, Inclusion, and Antiracism (EDIA) Council is proud to present the draft of the Department of Health Services’ first-ever EDIA Strategic Plan to transform systemic policies and practices that have contributed to inequitable employment and patient care at DHS.

This draft plan represents months of reflection, discussion, and visioning by hundreds of workforce, patient, and community members to earnestly and compassionately address stakeholder needs and hopes. We offer this plan as a first step, a solid foundation on which we can continue to build and improve, letting our commitment to justice guide us in creating a health system that nurtures the wellbeing of everyone.

Now we want to hear from you.

Review the draft of the EDIA Strategic Plan below and then attend a patient or community listening session or complete the feedback survey. What parts of the plan do you love? Do you see your perspective and needs represented? What would you change?

We will use your feedback to help us finalize the best version of this strategic plan.
