A Message from HHS CEO of the healthcare division:
As a nation, we’ve been battling together against the COVID-19 health crisis these past few months. Now, on the heels of the pandemic, we are faced with the horrific death of George Floyd in Minneapolis, as well as numerous other painful tragedies that have unfolded across the country. These events have prompted a large scale public outcry and justifiable demand to eliminate racial injustice, but we also understand they have impacted many of our employees on a personal level.
As many of our leaders, team members, and their families navigate this difficult time, I want you to know that we stand with you. We are here to listen, to care, and to support you anyway we can. We are fortunate to have a diverse employee population from all walks of life that works together towards a common goal, which makes us strong and OneHHS.
We would also like to be clear regarding our position on a few of the topics that have been in the forefront of our thoughts: HHS does not tolerate any type of discrimination or racism. We support the pursuit of justice and equal rights for Black Americans and all people of color. We do not condone the mistreatment of any individual based on the color of their skin, their gender, their sexual orientation, or their background. We believe all individuals should have a voice and have an opportunity to be heard.
As an organization and as individuals, we have to be willing to take ownership, self-reflect, and listen to others in order to improve and better deliver on our commitments. As our senior leadership team and I evaluate how we can improve, we want you to know we are open to ideas and suggestions from our people, and we’re here to listen. I welcome you to reach out to any senior leader to share your feedback and ideas.
We understand that this is a challenging time for many, and as a company, we are here to support you and are committed to creating an inclusive and welcoming environment for all.
Brian Weed, HHS, Healthcare Division
