Common Spirit



St. Luke’s Health CEO Doug Lawson wanted to create a series of videos giving employees from all phases of the organization a platform to share their stories. This effort evolved into Common Spirit’s “Listening to Our Voices,” a monthly series that lifted up viewpoints and topics rarely discussed in corporate media: from the immigrant’s journey, to the challenges of being gay in a Catholic organization, to the elevated maternal mortality rate in African-Americans. These videos were a centerpiece of organizational dialogue around differing perspectives and experiences amongst employees, and strove to focus less on the differences between us than the universal, Common Spirit that unites us all.
