Strength Through Diversity

Within the Mount Sinai Health System, we’re strongly committed to meeting the needs of people from all walks of life—whether they’re patients from the diverse communities we serve or our own employees. We promote recognition and respect for individual and cultural differences, and always strive to make our employees feel valued and appreciated.

We believe that diversity is a driver for excellence. Therefore, regardless of your age, race/ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, military/veteran status, disability status, religious belief or other defining characteristics, we value the impact your differences have on creating an inclusive environment where everyone feels they belong.

Respecting the Person You Are

Your experiences, perspectives, and insights help make the Mount Sinai Health System an organization that is responsive to the wider community; a leader in health care; and a vibrant, interesting and fulfilling place to work. We work hard to recruit and retain the best people, and to create a welcoming, nurturing work environment where you can develop professionally. Through the Office for Diversity and Inclusion, Site Diversity Councils and Mount Sinai Health System-wide employee resource groups, you gain access to educational and networking opportunities to keep you engaged and help you succeed within the organization.


The Office for Women’s Careers (OWC) was created to foster a gender equitable environment to assure that women will be given the same opportunity as men to succeed in research and clinical careers at Mount Sinai. We are committed to aggressively pursuing and developing the innovative capacity of women and men, and we are taking active steps to increase representation of women at all stages of their career.

We aim to decrease barriers to career advancement faced by women by providing a supportive environment conducive to job satisfaction and career advancement. This includes providing flexible and family-friendly policies, extended timeframe for promotion or tenure to accommodate personal obligations relating to significant events such as childbirth, adoption or care of an elderly parent, a part-time track, a parents group, and daycare. Our policies and programs create a work environment where all members of our community can succeed, advance and thrive.

Connecting With Our Patients

The Mount Sinai Health System is at the national and global forefront of health care providers, thanks to our comprehensive approach to delivering culturally competent patient care. Our commitment to diversity builds on a strong foundation, particularly through the Center for Multicultural and Community Affairs at the Icahn School of Medicine, community partnerships and education programs that encourage people from diverse cultures and experiences to pursue careers in health care.
