Opening Discussion Topic:
For decades, Kaiser Permanente’s been committed to supporting inclusion and engagement across its enterprise. In fact, Fortune recently ranked KP #20 on its list of “the best workplaces for diversity.” Of course, it’s not just a “feel-good” move, according to Forbes, diversity leads to more creative teams and increases a company’s bottom line. No wonder Kaiser’s Health Plan has two senior leaders heading up their commitment to Equity, Inclusion, and Diversity. And Marcos Vasconcelos is one of them.
During our Members’ Discussion, in addition to sharing “What’s Up?,” we’ll look to hear what your organization has done to attract, retain, and equitably advance women and those from underrepresented groups, including veterans and individuals with disabilities. Then our Featured Member, Marcos Vasconcelos, who’s primary responsibility at Kaiser Permanente is Executive Director, Strategic Market Planning, will tell us about his “other job,” as the co-leader of the plan’s commitment to “Equity, Inclusion, and Diversity,” and share examples of how it plays out “behind the scenes.”
Marcos Vasconcelos, in addition to his “EID” position, is responsible for leading cross-functional teams in developing Kaiser Permanente’s pricing and market strategy recommendations for senior leaders. His accountabilities include leading the National rate setting and membership forecasting teams, as well as the Channel and Strategic Projects market strategy teams.
