Our Values and Philosophy of Diversity

We foster a diverse work force that recognizes and values every individual for his or her unique background, skills, and viewpoints.

We are committed to a work environment that affords all employees an equal opportunity to advance to their full potential.  We pledge to one another to communicate and provide an environment in which we:  

  • respect each other and are free from harassment, discrimination, and intolerance;
  • treat one another fairly;
  • provide all individuals an equal opportunity and access for growth, development, and advancement with a support system of programs and people to facilitate success;
  • recognize and reward individuals based on abilities and achievements; and 
  • encourage an environment where an open mind is accepted as a positive contribution.

 The development of all employees is critical to the development of SHA; and SHA, at all levels, represents and reflects the communities we serve.
