Our Philosophy - Equity, Inclusion, Diversity

Throughout our 75-year history, Kaiser Permanente’s unwavering mission and foundational values have led us to embrace diversity and pursue equality. Our organization started in the shipyards with women and men, including those of color, working as equal members of industry-leading teams. In the 1940s, when hospitals were segregated, our hospitals actively built diverse teams of employees and physicians, had integrated wards, and all our patients were treated equally regardless of race.

In the wake of the recent and tragic deaths of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery and too many more, we’ve witnessed a raising of the consciousness of Americans and the world to a reality that we can no longer ignore: the treatment of Black Americans in our country is unacceptable. This is a moment in time when we must stand together – as a community and as individuals – against the racism and social injustice that remain endemic in our society.

As an active partner in our community, Kaiser Permanente believes that everyone has a right to thrive. We envision a future where our communities and people everywhere experience more healthy, happy and empowered years, and we look forward to working with our diverse network of community partners to make that vision a reality.
