The American Red Cross values the diversity of its workforce, suppliers, and partners. We recognize the power of harnessing collective similarities and differences that help equip our organization and its people to deliver on the Red Cross mission of service, in a manner that is both sensitive and culturally competent.
We continually demonstrate our commitment to DEI, valuing diversity of thought, backgrounds, experiences, gender identities, sexual orientation, and cultures. This allows us to work locally and across the country to deliver lifesaving services to the communities we serve. Our efforts are strengthened through guidance provided by a collection of external national DEI thought leaders who comprise our National Diversity Advisory Council.
Our DEI Mission:
The American Red Cross will consistently deliver its products, goods, and services in a culturally competent manner.
Our DEI Vision:
The American Red Cross aspires to be an organization fully committed to diversity, equity, and inclusion by creating and maintaining a diverse, high-performing workforce of employees and volunteers who reflect all communities we serve; by cultivating a collaborative, inclusive and respectful work environment that empowers all contributors; and by leveraging diverse partnerships – all of which helps to ensure culturally competent service delivery supported by effective community leadership and engagement.
