A Note from Ximedica Regarding Diversity, Inclusion and Equality

June 11, 2020

At Ximedica, we support inclusivity and condemn all forms of racism and discrimination. We hope for and support positive change that can lead to healing in our communities. 

The past weeks have been a reminder that while we are all focused on keeping our loved ones safe and healthy, there continues to be societal inequalities that can only be changed by listening, reflection and ultimately action.  There are folks at all levels of Ximedica that have personally expressed support to use this moment to do all three.

We are committed to providing a fair and inclusive environment for you, our greatest assets. To kick-off our efforts, we are establishing a Diversity & Inclusion Council chaired by Michelle Wu, Senior Vice President of Operations and Steve Snow, Vice President of Human Resources. This council will consist of multi-disciplinary peers across all levels of our company and will be tasked with reviewing Ximedica’s inclusion practices throughout the company. The council will bring visibility to Ximedica’s efforts and continue to drive tangible action. 

To begin, the council will:

  • establish the charter for the council including rules, timing, etc. 
  • examine our current practices around diversity and inclusion
  • conduct a review of current Ximedica policies and procedures related to diversity, recruitment practices advancement and inclusion
  • provide training in this area including Unconscious Bias training 
  • implement a matching donation program for any employee who contributes to a cause of their choice 

There are no perfect answers and actions because these issues have been generational and deep, but we cannot truly heal our communities unless we move forward in a positive way. The energy coming from our Ximedica family is inspiring. We are a group who thrive on actions and solutions.  It will take all of us to move forward together and we all are accountable to do our part so that as an organization we can deliver on these initiatives, and experience positive outcomes we can be proud of both as Ximedicans and as citizens.
