Planned Parenthood Federation of America: A Profile of Diversity


Think about reproductive health care, and the name Planned Parenthood Federation of America comes up. Planned Parenthood is the country's most trusted name in providing men, women, and teens high-quality, affordable medical care. It has been promoting for almost a century a commonsense approach to women’s health and well-being, based on respect for each individual’s right to make informed, independent decisions about health, sex, and family planning.

Central to Planned Parenthood's dedicated work is the community: “Our 66 unique, locally governed affiliates nationwide operate approximately 700 health centers, which reflect the diverse needs of their communities,” informing and educating Americans about reproductive and sexual health. At the same time, it also advocates global health.

Diversity is at the core of Planned Parenthood corporate beliefs, among which are its beliefs in the fundamental right of each individual, throughout the world, to manage his or her fertility, regardless of the individual's income, marital status, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, age, national origin, or residence. We believe that respect and value for diversity in all aspects of our organization are essential to our well-being.

Thus its dedicated staff, volunteers, and interns reflect the diversity of the communities they serve, as Planned Parenthood gives equal employment opportunity to highly qualified individuals, regardless of gender, race, age, sexuality, or disability.
