GHV’s Justice, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion Statement
At Global Health Visions (GHV) we are committed to ensuring the tenants of Justice, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (JEDI). These tenants are central to our mission, culture, and vision, driving meaningful change and sustainable progress both within our organization and across our network of partners.
As an ever-evolving company, we have made a steadfast commitment to actively work to implement justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion into every aspect of our business. We know that this commitment will strengthen our internal structure and culture, and enhance the products and services we deliver to our partners. At the center of our JEDI policy is our company’s adherence to a non-discrimination policy.
As humans working in the fast-paced, driven, and vibrant landscape of health and development, our JEDI policies hold us accountable to our values and to the people who are impacted by our work. As we strive to improve the health and well-being of individuals and communities in the U.S. and around the world, our JEDI policies make us better citizens, consultants, community members, and activists.
We strive to break down barriers and systemic disadvantages to resources, opportunities, and participation for people who have been historically excluded – both in our work with partners and in our work environment at GHV. We strive to facilitate equitable access to decision-making processes and a safe and productive work environment.
Tackling inequity and ensuring a workplace environment where practices, projects, and partnerships are fair and equal is a central component to GHV’s structure and work. Recognizing disparities that impact equality, we strive every day, both within our company and with outside partners, to create a world where equity and justice thrive. We do this by ensuring equal access to opportunities, approaching every day with an open mind, promoting a work culture that understands and respects the unique differences, valuable skills, and experiences individuals contribute to GHV.
Within our own work environment at GHV, and in our relationships with partners across multiple sectors, we believe that diversity should be supported and celebrated. At GHV, we actively work to meaningfully engage with a diverse set of individuals, recognizing that their lived experiences and unique backgrounds emulate our core ideals, make our work outcomes richer and more productive, and reflect the world in which we live and work. In this vein, we commit to continually assess our network of partners and our staff members to ensure they are reflective of our ideals and the principles of diversity.
We know that the mission and vision of our company are not achievable without the active inclusion of diverse perspectives. We actively work to facilitate a culture of respect and welcome the full involvement of all individuals that want to contribute to the mission and vision of GHV.
