Our Commitment to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
The E.WE Foundation is committed to ensuring that all families have equitable access to quality healthcare; and specifically, families living with rare diseases, medical complexities, and special health needs have accelerated access to quality healthcare, early intervention and social services. We believe patients with and without chronic illness like Edwards Syndrome, Trisomy 18, should have immediate access to quality healthcare, medical resources, and economic support, without bias or prejudice.
We are committed to doing our part for the more than 30 million patients living with rare diseases in the United States and over 400 million worldwide. We stand in solidarity with patient communities and organizations striving to improve and advance how patients interpret, understand, and receive healthcare services, treatments, and information. We are committed to transforming healthcare solutions and positively influencing the medical perspective through efforts of advocacy, education, and public policy. We recognize and acknowledge the disparities surrounding ethnicity, race, gender, age, socioeconomic status, education, religion, geography, gender identity, and legal status. We commit to dismantling the narrative of exclusion by empowering the patient voice to ensure all individuals receive equitable access to healthcare and community resources.
We are committed to recruiting individuals from diverse backgrounds and partnering and supporting stakeholders who share our commitment of inclusivity. We are committed to creating an organizational culture that respects differences and similarities, and reflects our stance on championing diverse representation, equitable access, and inclusion for all.
