Employee resource groups (ERGs) are System-wide groups of employees who are supported by the Mount Sinai Health System (MSHS) site diversity councils and are united by a common goal, interest, or characteristic. These commonalities may include various dimensions of diversity such as race/ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, disability status, generation, religious affiliation, military/veteran status, or other attributes.
MSHS encourages the formation of ERGs to help maintain an environment where all employees, faculty and students feel they belong. Equally important, through innovations from our ERGs, we are better able to provide appropriate care to the diverse populations we serve, identify and eliminate health disparities, and enhance the patient experience.
All employees are invited and encouraged to join a group and/or participate in ERG activities and events. Click on an ERG name below or call the Office for Diversity and Inclusion (ODI) at 646-605-8280 to learn how you may become involved. Additionally, if you are interested in starting a group that is not represented below, e-mail the ODI at firstname.lastname@example.org.
