EMPLOYEE RESOURCE GROUPS

With the support and guidance of the JEDI team, LifeBridge Health’s employee-run resource groups (ERG) provide team members from various cultures and communities with an outlet for engaging with their fellow community members, advocating for change, hosting events and more.

Black Culture

The Black Culture ERG works to create an inclusive environment for all African-American and Black employees through their offerings of educational opportunities, networking, community events, cultural events and social gatherings.

Hispanic-Latino Network

This resource group provides a space within the LifeBridge Health System where Latino and Hispanic employees as well as allies can engage in conversation, collaboration, and community in order to provide opportunities for networking, professional development, charitable public service, community involvement, and enhancing patient experience for the Latino and Hispanic population in the Greater Baltimore region.

LGBTQIA+

Providing an outlet for advocacy, support and education, this group is a testament to the rich array of sexual orientations and gender identities within the employee population. Through this group, LGBTQIA+ employees and their allies can connect to promote educational and social opportunities, advocate for improvements to the experiences of LGBTQIA+ team members and allies at LifeBridge Health and more.

This new Employee Resource Group will also plan opportunities for involvement in the community, and networking events for its members.
