Committed to reflecting our communities
At Hinge Health, we’re committed to maintaining a work environment that reflects the communities we serve and where we live and work.
Our commitment to DEI starts at the top with our founders, including our CEO who is one of the few Latino CEOs in a startup company. Through the diversity of thought, experience and insight of our employees, we strive to create an inclusive slate of musculoskeletal products and services that can reach the most people to do the most good.
As part of our commitment to Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DEI), we’ve taken key steps to infuse diversity, equity and inclusion into everything we do including:
