Kimball International Receives Women in Healthcare’s Outstanding Organization Award
Kimball International was awarded the Outstanding Organization Award by Women in Healthcare at the 2021 LeadHERship Summit on October 21, 2021. Kimball International was chosen for the award in part because of their Elevate leadership development program that offers coaching and experiential learning projects for high potential leaders at the company.
The award was received by Jill Joseph, Manager, Health A&D Strategy for Kimball International at the Summit in Baltimore, MD. In addition to the Elevate leadership development program, Women in Healthcare highlighted Kimball International’s focus on diversity of the Board of Directors and Executive Leadership Team and the company’s commitment to fostering an environment of respect and dignity as reasons for receiving the award.
The Elevate leadership development program is a year-long, immersive program that is led by the company’s CEO, Kristie Juster. “This program brings leaders throughout our organization together to tackle organizational goals, strengthen individual problem-solving skills and more,” Jill Joseph said. “We are so excited to receive this Award and to continue to provide development opportunities for women leaders in the company.”
The Outstanding Organization Award is given to companies each year by Women in Healthcare and recognizes programs or initiatives that align with the values of the organization. Women in Healthcare promotes professional development of women in the healthcare industry through networking, education and mentorship. The organization collaborates with 20 local chapters to mentor women in the industry through professional development and learning opportunities. Two Kimball International employees–Kimberly Montague (Michigan) and Jill Joseph (Washington D.C.)–currently serve as Women in Healthcare local chapter presidents.
