Greenville Health System announced Wednesday, Aug. 2, it once again made Diversity MBA Magazine’s 50 Out Front list.
GHS said it was the sixth consecutive year it has been named on the list, which recognizes companies that hire and support women and minority managers.
“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, vice president of human resources for GHS, in a statement.
GHS said some of the ways it has developed a pipeline for a diverse selection pool of managers includes its Young Professionals and Emerging Leaders programs.
Young Professionals allows employees to participate in education sessions, network, and receive mentoring from established leaders across the health system, GHS said.
The GHS Emerging Leaders program gives high performing employees an opportunity to further the development of their leadership skills, the health system said.
“As our community and those we serve become increasingly diverse, it is important that our health system continue its strides to mirror those communities while developing capable leaders,” said Scott Porter, vice president of equity and inclusion for GHS, in a statement.
Diversity MBA Magazine, which is a bimonthly publication of DMBA Publishing, reaches more than 1.9 million readers worldwide via online and print.
“CEO engagement and commitment to community continues to be at an all-time high,” said Pam McElvane, CEO and publisher of Diversity MBA Magazine, in a statement. “We expect to see companies more and more find ways to integrate social responsibility, community and workplace as the formula for building successful inclusive environments. It is, however, equally important for companies to continue to build their diverse talent pipeline that includes women and all dimensions of diversity.”
