sessions. The Wellstar DEI Advisory Council works in collaboration with our established Inclusion Councils to ensure the voices of our team members are reflected in all the work we do and enable a connected cycle of feedback across our system. With the recent launch of Inclusion Councils within Wellstar Medical Group and Shared Services, every Wellstar facility and department is working to advance DEI. Together, these cross-functional team members keep a pulse on the unique needs and opportunities at each of our sites and work closely with an Executive Sponsor to drive work forward.

“The events of 2020 presented for all of us, as individuals and as an organization, an opportunity to reaffirm our commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion. We are working tirelessly to ensure Wellstar is not only a place where racism and discrimination of any kind is not tolerated, but also an environment where everyone is able to be their full and authentic self,” says Garry Gross, Operational Leader of the Wellstar DEI Advisory Council.
