Allina Health receives high marks in the second Racial Equity Dividends Index Report

MINNEAPOLIS (Oct. 3, 2023) – Allina Health participated in the Center for Economic Inclusion’s second Racial Equity Dividends Index Report and earned high marks in four categories: products and services; public policy; leadership and procurement.


The Center for Economic Inclusion created the Racial Equity Dividends Index to help organizations measure their progress toward meeting their equity goals. Allina Health is proud to be the only health care organization in Minnesota to take part in the index since its inception.

“Working towards equity is a crucial part of Allina Health’s caring mission to prevent illness, restore health and provide comfort to those who entrust us with their care,” said Jacqueline Thomas-Hall, vice president and chief diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging (DEIB) officer at Allina Health. “We are working to ensure equity and belonging are at the core of everything we do, which is why we approach this work from the perspective of a health care provider, employer, community member and purchaser and investor.”

Allina Health acknowledges the DEIB journey is ongoing, long-term work. The 2023 Racial Equity Dividends Index report identified areas where the organization can make even more strides toward equity, including hiring, culture retention and advancement. The health care system will implement strategies over the next year to make improvements in those areas.

“Allina Health’s scores in the Racial Equity Dividends Index Report show the impact we can all make when we create measurable goals to turn diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging into action at all levels of our organization and community,” Thomas-Hall said.
