COMMITMENTS

Their first commitment is to host a diversity town hall that is curated by TLF and they are working on other items as well. DS recently provided the majority level support toward an independent, certified continued medical education and Quality Improvement program, Improving Breast Cancer Disparities for Minority Patients in Chicago, a Case Study for the globe. DS supports organizations (with funding and volunteerism) dedicated to addressing disparities in healthcare, particularly underserved communities for STEM education (Students2Science) as well as healthcare access (Zufall). DS has conducted a cross-functional meeting with many from various regions on “Open Conversation” to begin a dialogue among employees about racial injustice. This is the first in a series of events and activities specifically designed to ensure diversity and inclusion for all at DS. We are also looking into our hiring practices – more to come. DS HR held a Manager Forum recently on Unconscious Bias. DS Compliance are doing conduct training on our Standards of Business Conduct, which includes nondiscrimination and other related topics.
