Seattle Children's Named to the Seramount Inclusion Index
The healthcare leader is recognized for best practices in sharing diversity data transparently
Today, Seattle Children’s has been recognized as a leader in creating an inclusive workplace by Seramount (formerly Working Mother Media) in its sixth annual Inclusion Index. Seattle Children’s was among the 54 organizations recognized for creating an inclusive workplace, receiving a 60 percent or higher score. Seattle Children’s also received high marks for sharing diversity data transparently and for our work to create a culture of inclusion and belonging. This is the first time Seattle Children’s has received this honor.
Seramount measures organizations’ success across key indicators for effective diversity and inclusion efforts. The Inclusion Index helps organizations understand trends and opportunities in demographic representation, creates a road map to drive internal change, and identifies diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) solutions to close any gaps. Organizations provided data and were measured in three key areas: best practices in the recruitment, retention, and advancement of people from underrepresented groups—women, racial/ethnic minorities, people with disabilities, and LGBTQ+ people; inclusive corporate culture, including leadership accountability; and demographic diversity for women and racial/ethnic minorities.
“At Seattle Children’s, we are committed to building a culture of belonging and inclusion. We believe a healthy and anti-racist culture is more likely to result in more equitable health outcomes and more positive experiences for the patients and families we serve,” said Myra Gregorian, senior vice president and chief people officer at Seattle Children’s. “We are honored to be named to Seramount’s 2022 Inclusion index and are eager to continue making significant strides on our journey to become an anti-racist organization.”
This year, 175 organizations applied to participate in Seramount’s 2022 Inclusion Index. Completed applications were collected online from December 2021 through March 2022. Results reveal opportunities for all organizations to target their diversity and inclusion efforts for greater effectiveness.
“We are pleased to see corporations continue to focus on their DEI efforts effectiveness by evaluating their accountability measures through precise metrics that pinpoint any challenges and create opportunities for next steps” says Katie Oertli Mooney, Managing Director of Diversity Best Practices at Seramount. “We are proud to recognize our Inclusion Index companies for their progress and dedication to creating inclusive workplaces where all talent is valued and set up for their own success.”
