Our Commitment

Our commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion is one that reflects the intrinsic values of our company. It’s rooted in our core.

We measurably improve the lives of the most vulnerable members of society and those who care for them. Having a collective of voices, perspectives, and experiences is central to our mission and impact.

Every day we move forward with intention and action to ensure that our teams, clients, partners, and caregivers know we are committed to positively impacting the communities we serve.

Promoting Diversity

Understanding concepts such as cultural competency helps us improve care delivery and patient outcomes, as well as promote inclusive care settings. These factors lead to better health equity, which is why Relias includes diversity training in all the learning packages we offer clients.
