Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, & Belonging

MCD DEIB steering committee

As a mission-driven organization dedicated to high-quality, enduring public health programs around the world, MCD Global Health brings together professionals from around the world with diverse backgrounds, experiences, and expertise. We plan to continue achieving our mission by furthering our work in diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging (DEI&B). We are approaching DEI&B with the mindset that our efforts should be directed toward identifying our systemic issues and developing lasting solutions while ensuring all of our team members feel counted and valued.

We are committed to a work environment where:

  • We do not want to be able to just count people, we want to make people feel counted.
  • We create spaces to discuss DEI&B issues, listen to understand, and collectively develop solutions.
  • We foster a culture where each employee is committed to being a culture champion and change agent.
  • We infuse DEI&B into our daily actions, so we can enable an environment of authentic belonging.

At MCD, our people are our strongest asset, and we are invested in ensuring all of us have the language, understanding, and cultural competence to be DEI&B Culture Champions. This is so that everyone can feel like they belong at MCD and ensure that this is also reflected in our mission, vision, and core values.

Our shared commitment to DEI&B is creating new pathways for MCD on the rewarding journey that we have embarked on. We are proud of where we have come from, recognize the miles we have to go and the challenges ahead, and look forward to integrating this important work as one of the pillars of MCD Global Health’s Strategic Plan.
