BIRMINGHAM, Ala., September 2, 2021 / Leading patient engagement platform Pack Health today announced the recent formation of its employee-led Diversity, Equality, and Inclusion (DE&I) committee. The DE&I committee will seek to enact meaningful and measurable change to DE&I related matters and maintain Pack Health’s position as a leader in workplace equity in the Birmingham community and beyond.
In June 2020, Pack Health began several measures to work toward a more equitable and inclusive workplace, including a series of lunch and learns that featured 11 Birmingham community leaders sharing their lived experiences. Additionally, a designated group of employees drafted a working document outlining strategies to address issues of diversity, equity, and inclusion that evolved into the working charter for the DE&I committee.
The members of Pack Health’s DE&I committee are as follows:
- Angelina Londoño, PhD (Outgoing chair) – Health Advisor and Training Associate
- Carlos Martinez Diaz (Incoming chair) – Bilingual Health Advisor
- Antony Brown – Member Success Representative
- Kleneice Chambers – Senior Digital Marketing Specialist
- Brantley Fry, Esq. – Chief of Staff and General Counsel
- Victor Gay Cortes – Bilingual Health Advisor
- Lindsey Jackson, MPH, CPH – Medical Affairs Manager
- Steve Kimm, MBA – Vice President of Strategy & Sales for Life Sciences
“Pack Health is committed to being action-oriented. The launch of the DE&I committee is a step ensuring that Pack Health can not only continue to drive positive change within the organization, but in the healthcare industry as a whole,” says Mazi Rasulnia, PhD, Founder and CEO of Pack Health. “This progress is something I am personally dedicated to and I am grateful for the extraordinary work the DE&I committee has done so far. ”
Notable aims of Pack Health’s DE&I committee include an internally conducted quantitative and qualitative organizational needs assessment, implicit bias training facilitated within small groups, peer-led opportunities to amplify the voices and experiences of historically stigmatized groups, and incorporation of DE&I initiatives within client engagement. Pack Health’s DE&I committee will also develop strategic subcommittees to accelerate progress in the completion of these aims.
“Strong work environments are built on the principle of not merely tolerating but truly valuing what makes us different. The committee will serve as a platform for our colleagues to share their voices and create an environment where they can not only learn and grow but thrive,” says Carlos Martinez Diaz, Incoming Chair of the DE&I Committee.
