Select Health supports International Women's Day
Select Health is proud to support International Women's Day. As a company dedicated to advancement and equality, we believe that this day is important for all women.
On March 8th this year, International Women's Day celebrates the achievements of women worldwide while also highlighting challenges that still need to be addressed in order to achieve true equality. In honor of this occasion, we want to celebrate our women caregivers who are working hard every day to make sure that everyone has access to high quality healthcare services when they need them most!
In honor of International Women's Day, Select Health supports the fight for equality and progress.
Select Health is proud to be an equal opportunity employer with a strong focus on diversity and inclusion. Our commitment extends beyond legal compliance; it's built into our culture from top down--and it starts with hiring talented people regardless of their gender identity or expression (GIE), race/ethnicity (RE), sexual orientation (SO), age (A) or physical ability level (PAL). We believe each person brings unique experiences which help create an environment where all employees feel comfortable speaking up about issues both inside and outside their departments because they know someone will listen closely without judgement--especially when those issues affect other employees too!
Select Health has recently initiated a monthly Women in Leadership forum which has four key goals:
- Connect women in leadership—and those who want to go into it—through training and education
- Promote and provide opportunities for women to be in senior leadership roles
- Provide mentoring from other women leaders and key internal stakeholders
- Create a forum to discuss, support, and improve issues and opportunities that are unique to women in leadership
What International Women's Day means to leaders within Select Health.
Teresa Hall: We all desire to be seen and given a chance. What is promising along the equity journey, is the recognition that being inclusive when hiring and promoting those willing to throw their hat in the ring is not sufficient. Rather, we have an obligation to show those who may not realize their potential what is possible.
Angela Choberka: When I think about International Women’s Day and celebrating women, I am reminded of the stories of the women Alice Walker depicts in the book, The Color Purple. All of the women in the story struggle within systems of oppression they were born into. They find a way to regain their power and their voices through various means but are also heavily influenced by the other women’s actions and growth throughout their lives– that is what I see as an opportunity for all women – to be allies and the best champions for one another – then we cannot remain unseen and unheard.
“The most common way people give up their power is by thinking they don’t have any.” - Alice Walker.
At Select Health we couldn't be prouder to support this important cause and encourage other organizations to do the same. So, join us this March 8th in celebrating the women who help make a positive impact on the world, because working together, we really can make change.
