At Violet, we’re on a mission to create more human, identity-centered healthcare. We all deserve to be cared for by clinicians that understand our identities as well as our clinical needs. Having recently launched partnerships with some of the best healthcare organizations in the world – Northwell, NOCD, Brightline, Parsley, and more. – we’re hiring our first Head of Product to better engage and serve the clinicians cultivating their cultural competence on our platform.

Who we are: Violet is the first platform dedicated to benchmarking cultural competence within health care organizations, upskilling clinical teams to become more culturally competent, and helping the healthcare industry deliver identity-centered healthcare for all patients.

At Violet, we believe that a clinician’s cultural competence is an essential component for providing the right care -- especially for patients from culturally diverse communities. We believe that patients must be able to bring all of their identities to their clinicians to receive the care they deserve. In order to help patients find the right care providers, we leverage data to benchmark where each provider is in their journey of being inclusive, and we provide access to education to upskill each provider so they can become more inclusive.
