Cambia Health Foundation partners with organizations that value diversity and work to create an inclusive culture. As a condition of receiving funds, we will ask all organizations to certify they do not discriminate in any aspect of business operations on the basis of age, gender, gender identity, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, disability, national origin, political affiliation, religious belief, and any other status protected by law. We regard a certification of nondiscrimination as one aspect of an organization’s commitment to diversity and creating a culture of inclusion. Beyond adherence to nondiscrimination policies, each organization is on their own journey of learning how best to realize these goals. Cambia Health Foundation is also committed to these practices for our organization. We value learning alongside our grantees and community partners as we consider and make our investments.
