Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

Home Business operations Community engagement Workplace experience Healthcare equity Celebrating diversity

Expanding opportunities for all

Cook is committed to removing barriers due to difference to create pathways to opportunity and well-being so that our employees, patients, communities, and business can reach their full potential.

Diversity is about acknowledging and celebrating who we are as individuals. At Cook, we strive for full participation from all our employees, of every sex, gender identity, race, age, sexual orientation, pregnancy status, national origin, religious affiliation, veteran status, ability, political belief, and class. We know that a diverse workforce provides our teams with a wide range of experience, knowledge, and strengths. We value a diverse cross-section of thoughts and opinions to ensure our company culture stays balanced and strong.

But we understand that just welcoming diversity isn’t enough; we must make it equitable for everyone and be inclusive in everything that we do. We have to ensure that who you are, where you are from, and what path you took to get you here doesn’t impact your path moving forward and upward at Cook.

We get our hands dirty. We get down in the trenches. We listen, get involved, get our employees involved, and work with other organizations. It’s that deeper connection that companies must develop in their communities.
