Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DEI)

Mission Statement

One of the highest priorities at the Detroit Wayne Integrated Health Network (DWIHN) is working to create an equitable and inclusive environment for people of all backgrounds. As such, we act purposefully to attract, retain and serve staff, Providers and members who reflect the diversity of the populations we serve. Our environment supports and nurtures all people as respected individuals.

We are committed to promoting the principles of equal opportunity and multiculturalism where all individuals are valued, respected, provided opportunity to flourish, and open doors in their pursuit of excellence.

We encourage and welcome our community members to share ideas with us surrounding issues of diversity and inclusion.
