The leadership of any industry should be reflective of its customers. Nowhere is this imperative more critical than in the very human business of healthcare. The diversity of this country is one of its greatest strengths—a microcosm of the world—and, at its best, a model for a creative use of difference in the world. Ensuring that those who guide the institutions of American healthcare understand and also represent the diversity of this country is important.
We have made great progress toward improving the diversity of our leadership, as represented by the executives who make up this year’s Top 25 Minority Executives in Healthcare. Modern HealthcareM
has made a critical contribution to improving the diversity of our leadership by establishing this recognition program that highlights the “best and the brightest” of the growing cohort of persons of color in our leadership ranks.
As with Modern Healthcare
’s companion recognition program, the Top 25 Women in Healthcare, Russell Reynolds Associates is delighted to assist in making this award a reality. We take seriously our commitments to identifying and promoting both women and persons of color. It is an honor to be part of recognizing those who have contributed so much and inspiring those who come after. It is a pleasure to partner with Modern Healthcare
in showcasing this critical cohort of talent.
