Culture

Care deeply. Collaborate constantly. Design for the future of healthcare and health science + technology.

Our firm leads with transparency, building with trust, and creating flexibility. Bringing our client’s mission to reality drives our firm. Healthcare and health science + technology design is what we do and we love it.

4wrd

At E4H, we are dedicated to supporting the growth and success of our employees from underrepresented backgrounds and ensuring equitable treatment throughout the firm. 4wrd is our DEI initiative that provides staff with the tools and framework to succeed in the healthcare design industry. Our approach is centered on four goals: achieving a more balanced work force; emphasizing accountability; providing education and programming; and taking a DEI-based approach to design. These goals are supported by a robust mentoring program, employee resource groups, an annual scholarship supporting diversity in design, continuing education opportunities, and monthly 4wrd meetings. We partner with specialists for educational webinars on topics including unconscious bias, professional development, and building stronger teams. We are continuously working to improve our approach to design and providing opportunities for progress.
