Lost to racial and ethinic health inequities

Racism, now recognized as a public health crisis, harms communities and costs the U.S. economy $451 billion. Provider burnout exacerbates this, leading to subpar care, staff shortages, and disproportionately affecting BIPOC providers and providers in under-resourced areas. Togather aims to increase retention and reduce inequities by empowering healthcare providers with tools for personal growth and systemic change.

Providers are experiencing burnout

Burnout undermines healthcare, compromising care quality and deepening inequities. Emotional exhaustion affects patient care and provider mental health. Those addressing inequities, especially BIPOC providers facing systemic racism, endure added pressures including harassment and job instability. Togather responds by equipping providers to champion equitable healthcare while supporting their well-being.

Our values set us apart, and bring us together.

Anti-racism

The A of our ALI™ framework, anti-racism is integral to the foundation of Togather. We understand that in a racist society, it is not enough to be non-racist you must be anti-racist.

Collective action

When we unite our diverse backgrounds, passions, and experiences, the transformative power we create is unstoppable. Healthcare demands systemic change, and a collective approach is our most powerful tool.

Collective care

At the heart of Togather’s platform is collective care, where wellbeing extends beyond personal responsibility to become a communal effort, shaped and supported by all of us together.

Curiosity

We view curiosity as a driver for continuous growth and a source of inspiration for healthcare providers to keep learning, speaking up, and pushing for change.

Humility

Humility balances our convictions, grounding us in the community and compassionately connecting us to others. It teaches us to embrace diverse perspectives, adapt, and evolve our understanding.

Intersectionality

The I of our ALI™ framework, intersectionality is integral to the foundation of Togather. Intersectionality identifies multiple factors of advantages and disadvantages. It honors how we experience the world.

Joy

Joy is vital in our work—it revitalizes our spirits and strengthens our resolve. We celebrate the happiness that comes from caring for each other and advancing health equity.

Justice

Justice is our commitment to dismantling systemic barriers and ensuring that every individual has access to the care and resources they need.

Liberation

The L of our ALI™ framework, liberation is integral to the foundation of Togather. Liberation is not only being free from harm or the constraints of oppressive forces, but also having the internal and external resources needed to thrive.

Persistence

We persist in reaching our individual and collective goals knowing we have the power and support of the Togather community behind us.
