I am sneaking in another set of photos this week, because I was so taken (and impressed) by these images I encountered in the San Francisco Powell Street BART station. The commitment shown here echoes reports from other national organizations, most notably the Human Rights Campaign (which awarded KP a perfect 100 rating for corporate equality). These reports show that Kaiser Permanente sets a very high bar for supporting staff and members from different backgrounds.
Even though I am not officially an employee of Kaiser Permanente (I am a Permanente physician in an affiliated medical group), I have great respect for an organization that emphasizes leadership in this area. Protecting our vital populations by reducing disparities is one of the most important goals (actually the most important goal) I have as a physician.
