HOUSTON (July 19, 2023)

Toi Harris, MD, senior vice president and chief equity, diversity and inclusion officer for Memorial Hermann Health System, was recently named one of the “Diversity, Equity and Inclusions Officers to Know” by Becker’s Healthcare.

This prestigious list recognizes health care leaders who have been instrumental in instituting training sessions, establishing business resource groups, creating scholarship programs and improving hiring practices in an effort to uplift diverse populations and enhance health equity within their organizations and communities. 

“I am honored to be recognized together with those DEI officers who are working to make a difference within their organizations and communities,” Dr. Harris said.

According to Becker’s, hospitals and health systems that commit to an organizational culture of diversity, equity and inclusion are creating safer and more engaging environments for patients, providers and the communities they serve.

“We are pleased to see Dr. Harris recognized for her efforts to further our commitment to health equity, diversity and inclusion across the many communities we serve, including our workforce,” said David Callender, MD, president and CEO of Memorial Hermann Health System.

Most recently, Dr. Harris implemented an inclusive leadership training series for almost 1,700 leaders across the system, enhanced educational opportunities by publishing five DEI online courses, established employee resource groups and launched the Memorial Hermann Institute for the Advancement of Health Equity to leverage research and increase partnerships.
