Our City of Hope Diversity Resource Groups spring up organically as groups of people sharing a common identity, interest or goal. These groups promote the full participation of all members of the diverse City of Hope community.
By sponsoring blood drives, planning fundraisers, developing educational events, and hosting other activities, Diversity Resource Groups provide many opportunities for personal involvement and professional development. They include:
Asian American Community
The Asian American Community welcomes members who are from Asia, of Asian descent, or simply interested in Asian cultures and people. United by their love for Asian heritage and their commitment to the mission of City of Hope, the Asian American Community hosts the Chinese New Year Celebration, Tai Chi class and more.
Connecting People of African Descent for Hope
The Connecting People of African Descent for Hope group is an inclusive gathering of the voices, needs and interests of the employees of African descent at City of Hope.
