thriving careers with great culture

We know you can make an impact where ever are, but making an impact while being in a fun, safe, equitable, inclusive and diverse environment is the answer to a thriving career! 

Dayton Children's is a mosaic of employees who bring together a variety of backgrounds, styles, perspectives, values and beliefs to serve children, families and each other. Our commitment is to provide health equity for all of our patients. This is achieved when every person has the opportunity to "attain his or her full health potential and no one is disadvantaged from achieving this potential because of social position or other socially determined circumstances." 

That is why we have our employee resource groups (ERGs). These are voluntary, employee-led groups with an aim to foster a diverse, inclusive workplace aligned with the organizations they serve. We currently have the Black Employee Resource Group and the LGBTQ+ Employee Resource Group and will continue to add more! We also have many programs to help grow your career and education while at Dayton Children's, like our career connections program and tuition assistance!

We also love to celebrate - whether it is each other, cultural celebrations, religious observances, superhero day, Halloween or even when the Bengals make it to the Super Bowl! You can view some of our celebrations here on our YouTube channel.
