Employee Resource Councils
“Treat others the way they wish to be treated.”
~The BAYADA Way®
BAYADA is committed to creating a culture and environment of diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) where all employees can thrive and all clients can receive high-quality, personalized care with a sense of well-being, dignity, and trust.
Launched as an important part of our DEI journey and in response to employee feedback, our employee resource councils (ERCs) unite colleagues who identify as or are allies to specific-interest communities making up our one BAYADA family.
Our current ERCs:
- BAYADA Pride (LGBTQIA+)
- R.E.D. (Racial/Ethnic Diversity)
- W.I.L.L. (Women in Limitless Leadership)
Each council, championed by an executive-level sponsor, is comprised of employees at any level who want to take a leadership role in fostering an inclusive workplace. Together, they collaborate to solve real business challenges. Our ERCs are dynamic, with a goal of reflecting the current and evolving needs of the communities we serve.
