A Diverse Village Where Everyone Belongs

Belonging starts with each of us. We celebrate the diversity of our Village in the teammates who work in our centers, the patients we care for, the physicians we partner with and the communities we serve. In building our Diversity & Belonging (D&B) program, we take a collaborative, leader-led and teammate-driven approach, where everyone is involved in building and implementing our strategy.

We recognize that diversity has many dimensions that contribute to our unique viewpoints.

Belonging starts with each of us, so we are empowering all teammates to create belonging with each other.

Belonging

We are dedicated to cultivating a sense of belonging where everyone feels valued. Teammates experience belonging in many ways as they interact with one another throughout the work day, from supporting one another through tough times, to sharing a smile or a laugh.

Belonging for Our Patients
By getting to know patients as individuals, we create a sense of belonging for them. We do this by practicing the DaVita WE CARE behaviors, maintaining our award-winning patient education programs, and celebrating patients in fun and creative ways. ​​​​​​​

Expanding our Diversity & Belonging Impact and Scope

By taking an inside-out approach, we are committed to focusing on how we can make a greater impact in our Village and in the broader communities we serve. We are committed to investing $3,000,000 over the next three years to support teammates and communities of color through Economic Mobility and Health Equity. We will help teammates increase their earnings potential through career development and educational opportunities, and will contribute to equitable health care access and outcomes for the patient communities we serve.
