Sparrow has long been committed to Diversity. In 1992, Sparrow established its first Workforce Diversity Plan, a rather progressive move. The value of diversity and cultural competence is what Sparrow understands and accepts as a challenge and commitment for Sparrow’s future and position in this community. Sparrow recognizes the vastly changing community and workforce and will seize the opportunities this diverse community has to offer. Diversity can be defined in many ways. For Sparrow, diversity is the collective mixture of differences and similarities. Differences are more than gender, racial or cultural. Diversity also includes age, education, economic, geographical, sexual orientation, physical and mental disabilities and abilities, religion, status in the workplace, union, non-union, personalities, ethnicity, etc. Thus, we all represent diversity and everyone is a unique individual. While everyone is a unique individual, there are similarities that exist amongst us. It is the similarities that we have that will create the common ground to bridge our differences. This is one of many goals Sparrow will strive to conquer. Sparrow must not only value diversity, it must effectively manage diversity. No longer is the melting pot approach acceptable. It is important to recognize individual differences are beneficial to the workplace. Valuing Associates' as unique individuals and managing diversity are priorities. Sparrow’s existing values and behavioral criteria (Policy # 30, 32 & 34) are excellent guidance tools for how we can respect the differences and build on the similarities to create an inclusive workplace. It is the responsibility of all Sparrow Associates to create an environment that is welcoming, comfortable and respectful to everyone.
