Kaiser Permanente of Georgia Accepts Human Rights Campaign 2018 Award On Behalf of Kaiser Permanente
The Georgia Region’s KP PRIDE Business Resource Group received the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) 2018 Award on behalf of all of Kaiser Permanente. Molly Malone, KP PRIDE’s Co-Chair, accepted the invitation by KP’s National Office of Equity, Inclusion & Diversity to attend the event and accept the award.
“As a region, we couldn’t pass on the opportunity to represent Kaiser Permanente at this prestigious award ceremony,” said Rosan Petrillo, manager of equity, inclusion & diversity. “KP was recognized for earning a 100% score on the HRC Corporate Equality Index (CEI) survey for 12 years in a row.”
The Corporate Equality Index survey, administered by the Human Rights Campaign Foundation, is part of a national benchmarking survey and report, which evaluates corporate policies and practices related to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer workplace policies. HRC named Kaiser Permanente a Best Place to Work for LGBTQ Equality.
“Thank you so much for giving me the opportunity to represent TSPMG, Health Plan, Georgia, and all of Kaiser Permanente at the annual Human Rights Campaign Corporate Equality Index awards,” said Molly, who attended the April 9 gala in New York City. “I am grateful for supporting me in attending, as well as our organization’s efforts in continuing to reach 100% on the CEI for the past 12 years. As you may already know, this designation is no easy feat! The work that we are doing around inclusion matters to our colleagues, members and friends – and this award is only a small token of the tremendous efforts and accomplishments that we achieve each day.”
“We are proud of our long history of diversity and inclusion and we are grateful for the HRC’s recognition of our continuing work to provide the highest levels of opportunity and support to the LGBTQ community,” said Ronald L. Copeland, MD, FACS, senior vice president and chief diversity and inclusion officer.
