April 11, 2022

The Canadian College of Health Leaders is proud to announce that Alberta Health Services (AHS) was named recipient of the 2022 Excellence in Diversity & Inclusion Award.

As Canada’s fifth-largest employer — and Canada’s largest healthcare provider with over 130,000 employees, physicians and volunteers, AHS provides care and services to over 4.5 million Albertans. The organisation has put people, programs, work groups and resources in place to ensure all workers within Alberta’s healthcare system live its core values — compassion, accountability, excellence, safety and respect — and have cultural competency training so they have a deeper understanding and appreciation of other cultures and customs.

One of the organisation’s cornerstone accomplishment this past year is the Report and Recommendations of the AHS Anti-Racism Advisory Group including the Anti-Racism Position Statement, which affirms their commitment to combat racism and discrimination in all forms. AHS leads by example as a healthcare organization that’s growing its culture to be inclusive, respectful, and treat everyone with fairness and equality.

The Excellence in Diversity & Inclusion Award recognizes a forward-thinking healthcare organization that has demonstrated leadership in creating and promoting diversity and inclusion to improve the environment for its employees, and to better service their customers/patients, and the community.

The award is sponsored by Sodexo Canada Ltd. Sodexo provides comprehensive support service solutions to the healthcare marketplace in four key areas: Food Services, Facilities Management, Real Estate and Project Management.

This award is part of our CCHL National Awards Program. and will be presented at the virtual Honouring Health Leadership event on June 16, 2022.
