Mercy’s DREAM Committee Honored for Promoting Diversity


Des Moines, IA

The DREAM (Disability/Diversity Resources Engaging All Mercy) committee at Mercy Medical Center was honored as one of the top 25 organizational diversity councils in the U.S. by the Association of Diversity Councils. The DREAM committee received the first annual Diversity Council Honors Award at the 10th Annual Summit on Leading Diversity Conference. The 25 winners were selected by an independent panel of judges who evaluated diversity councils that have been in existence for at least two years. The councils were judged on their achievements in demonstrated results, management commitment, measurement/accountability and communication/education.
