What Women Should Know about Working At Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center
Diversity is a hallmark of our work at Memorial Sloan Kettering (MSK).
Having dedicated 130 years to treating and curing cancer, we know that cancer doesn’t discriminate. Our approach to every patient is unique to them; identifying the best, individualized treatment for a patient includes taking into consideration everything that makes them who they are, including their language, culture, background, and more. That approach is also realized in our dynamic and growing workforce, where we celebrate diversity as a key element of our business strategy for recruiting, retaining, and advancing the best talent available. At MSK, we also encourage our employees to champion ideas and share their different perspectives, knowing that each individual contribution leads to a greater whole.
Our Employee Resource Networks (ERNs) are voluntary, employee-formed task forces organized around a dimension of diversity, such as age, race, gender, sexual orientation, or physical ability. They are central to MSK’s goal of sustaining a business model that values a more inclusive environment for our employees and our patients. Our current ERNs include:
ABLE - Abolishing Barriers and Limitations for Everyone. The “Abilitators” support MSK employees with health challenges and disabilities. We promote the eight A’s of ABLE: Attraction (Recruitment); Association (Networking); Assessment; Assistance; Advocacy; Accommodation; Awareness; and Advancement.
BLAM!- Black, Latino, Asian and Multiracial Network We promote the awareness, recognition and appreciation of diverse ethnicities at MSK, by providing a platform for networking and communication.
LGBT - Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Pride We aim to foster an environment in which LGBT employees, patients, caregivers, and community partners feel respected, comfortable and valued, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity. All members of the MSK community, LGBT and allies, are welcome.
MWM - MSK Women on the Move MWM is dedicated to the professional and personal development of MSK’s female employees and aims to create an inclusive environment by connecting women at all levels of the organization. We provide opportunities for knowledge exchange; encourage awareness and understanding of our similarities and differences; and extend services to our organization and community.
VETERaN- Veterans Engaged Towards Employee Resources and Networking (VETERaN) supports and create initiatives that positively impact veterans in hiring, career development, accessibility, benefits and more.
