St. Jude Children's Research Hospital and our fundraising and awareness organization, ALSAC (American Lebanese Syrian Associated Charities), were built around the ideals of a diverse, inclusive and equitable world.
Since Day 1, our diverse workforce has been the cornerstone of our success
Our mission is to make a difference in the lives of children worldwide with cancer and other life-threatening diseases. From the very beginning, our founder, Danny Thomas, believed that "no child should die in the dawn of life."
His determination to dismantle bias and promote fair policies and practices is embedded in the fabric of our institution, and continues to guide us today.
We promote diversity and inclusion by valuing and celebrating the uniqueness of everyone
We're committed to making all employees feel welcome, respected and valued. As we collectively work to solve complex, worldwide problems, we're building a workplace environment representative of our national and global society. To us, diversity, equity and inclusion means appreciating our common humanity and celebrating our differences.
Located in Memphis, Tenn., St. Jude was the first fully integrated children's hospital in the South. From Day 1, no child was denied treatment at St. Jude because of race, ethnicity, beliefs or a family’s ability to pay.
St. Jude also played an important role in the integration of Memphis hotels. And at St. Jude, researchers, doctors and nurses have always looked like their patients — from all walks of life.
