Hanger's Diversity & Inclusion Pledge
It is imperative that we as a healthcare profession come together to publicly condemn social injustices and enact meaningful change against racism and inequality. We are a profession that stands for inclusion and respect for each and every person, irrespective of race, gender, disability, religion, sexual orientation, or any other trait that makes us unique from one another. We are a profession that restores hope, mobility, and independence, and that does not stop inside the walls of our organizations. We must also be a group of people committed to cultivating a culture of inclusion and empathy not only in our workplaces with our colleagues, our patients, and allied care providers, but also in our communities, each and every day and in each and every interaction.
At Hanger, including Hanger Clinic, ACP, and SPS, we are taking the following initial, tangible actions that will help contribute to the dismantling of systemic racism, interrupt bias, and in turn, create a more inclusive profession that will ultimately better serve all:
We are committed to continuing and expanding these efforts, and ask that you join us by embarking on similar, impactful actions to serve as a continuation of statements already released by many healthcare organizations on this important topic. Please contact Lisa Lodyga-Uhl (LLodyga@Hanger.com), Hanger's Director of Talent Management, Inclusion, and Engagement, with any questions about joining us in this endeavor.
