Health Access’ mission is based on universality and inclusion - and a commitment to ensure California’s health care systems work for *all* Californians. This goal demands justice and equity, as a guidepost for the work we do and how we strive to do it. To that end, Health Access’s commitment to dismantling discrimination, racism, patriarchy, homophobia, transphobia, ableism, and all forms of oppression must be embedded within our own organization. Embracing the diversity of our teams and a culture of inclusion makes us stronger. We strive to create an environment where we can all bring our full, authentic selves to work and all employees feel safe, valued, and empowered.
