Greenville Health System (GHS) once again made DiversityMBA Magazine’s 50 Out Front list, which recognizes companies’ hiring and support of women and minority managers.

GHS has made the list six consecutive years.

“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.

Scott Porter, MD, GHS vice president of equity and inclusion added, “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.”

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. DiversityMBA emphasizes how companies are championing 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.

“CEO engagement and commitment to community continues to be at an all-time high,” said Pam McElvane, CEO and publisher of DiversityMBA Magazine. “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.”

Some of the ways that GHS develops a pipeline for a diverse selection pool of managers includes the GHS Young Professionals and the GHS Emerging Leaders program. 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.
