For the second consecutive year, UCLA Health made the Forbes list for "Best Employers for Diversity" — ranking #7 in California (up from #8 last year) and #21 in the nation (up from #25 last year) – across all industries.

"We're honored to be acknowledged for our commitment to fostering a diverse and inclusive workplace. Our diversity of backgrounds, talents and perspectives shape us as a world-class academic medical center, and we're proud to be able to continuously attract and retain the best talent from around the world," says Susi Takeuchi, chief human resources officer, UCLA Health.

The annual Forbes list compiles the top 500 inclusive employers in the US based on an independent market research survey of 60,000 American working for firms or institutions with 1,000 or more employees. Organizations were evaluated on:

  • the diversity of their boards and executive teams
  • the diversity and inclusion initiatives
  • the number of endorsements received from non-employee members of minority groups
