Greenville Health System has been included in DiversityMBA Magazine’s 50 Out Front list for the sixth consecutive year. The list recognizes companies’ hiring and support of women and minority managers.
DiversityMBA’s list showcases “companies and institutions that make a strategic effort to implement intentional strategies for women and managers of diverse backgrounds to gain access to leadership roles,” according to a news release. DiversityMBA highlights recruiting efforts that result in a diverse talent selection for management opportunities. The pipeline development of emerging leaders was also a key focus for the magazine’s survey, as well as how impactful companies are with sustaining inclusive cultures, the release said.
“Receiving this recognition multiple times alongside some of the largest companies and universities in the United States is a great honor and it reinforces GHS’ commitment to diversity and inclusion,” said Doug Dorman, GHS vice president of human resources, in the release.
Some of the ways that GHS develops a pipeline for a diverse selection pool of managers includes the GHS Young Professionals program and the GHS Emerging Leaders program, according to the magazine. Young Professionals allows employees to participate in education sessions, network and receive mentoring from established leaders across the health system. The GHS Emerging Leaders program gives high performing employees an opportunity to further the development of leadership skills.
