Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion at Oak Street Health

The mission of Oak Street Health is advanced by being an organization that supports team members of all races, genders, backgrounds, and values and lifts up diverse voices.

Our vision is to build Oak Street Health into the leading healthcare provider for Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DE&I), for our team, our patients, and our communities.

Diversity at Oak Street Health 2023 Report

See how we’re building a team of diverse Oakies that help shape our business and reflect our communities in which we serve.

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion make us stronger. That’s why Oak Street Health is proud to support People Resource Groups. PRGs are voluntary, team member-led groups focused on fostering diversity, inclusion, and belonging.

These groups help team members (known as Oakies”) build stronger internal and external connections; offer social, educational, and outreach activities; and create development opportunities for future Leaders. Membership in any group is open to all Oakies.

Alliance Network

Provides volunteer opportunities and service events to the local communities that Oak Street Health serves. Its goal is to cultivate an environment of camaraderie among team members, while also supporting patients.
