Over the last several years, we've focused on embedding diversity and belonging into everything we do so that it becomes part of who we are.
Our partnerships with diverse organizations like the Forte Foundation and Management Leadership for Tomorrow help build a diverse bench of future DaVita leaders.
We are implementing diverse hiring practices including sourcing (where we source candidates from) and recruiting (including working towards diverse interview panels and candidate slates for some positions) to sustain leadership diversity in our Village. Additionally, our robust portfolio of career development programs promotes equal opportunity creation for our inherently diverse organization.
Examples of programs that provide opportunities for teammates to thrive in their careers:
Bridge to Your Dreams: Fully-funded tuition and support for patient care technicians to become DaVita nurses upon successful completion of the program
THRIVE: Development program to put nurses on trajectory to become field operators
Foresters: Continuous talent and career pipeline for facility administrators to become regional operations directors
