Kaiser honored with Catalyst Award

By
March 4, 2011 |

Kaiser Permanente is a recipient of the 2011 Catalyst Award, honoring exceptional initiatives from organizations that support and advance women in business.

“This year’s dynamic winning initiatives reflect the power and reach of Catalyst’s mission: ‘Expanding opportunities for women and business,’ ” said Ilene H. Lang, president and chief executive officer of Catalyst, in a news release. “They represent the future of diverse, agile organizations eager to strengthen their position in a tough global economy and serve as models of inclusive workplaces that improve the lives of employees and their families and communities.”

Catalyst Award-winning initiatives are evaluated in a rigorous year-long process against a robust set of criteria: business rationale, senior leadership support, accountability, communication, employee engagement, innovation and measurable results.

Kaiser Permanente’s initiative, Achieving Our Mission and Growing the Business Through the National Diversity Agenda, makes diversity and inclusion central to the organization’s competitive advantage and its ability to deliver culturally competent health care to its 8.6 million members, the news release said.

Kaiser’s initiative demonstrates that an investment in diversity and inclusion can yield continual improvement for women and men. In 2007, women held 47 percent of senior executive positions, and racially/ethnically diverse women held 12 percent of these positions. By 2009, these numbers had increased to 50 percent and 18 percent, respectively.

Through targeted recruitment, the organization increased the representation of diverse female executive physicians from 3.7 percent in 2007 to 11.8 percent in 2009, and diverse male executive physicians from 11.3 to 13.6 percent during that same time period. Between 2001 and 2009, the percentage of female board directors increased from 21 percent to 36 percent, and racially/ethnically diverse women on the board increased from 7 percent to 24 percent.
