We are deeply saddened by the tragic death of George Floyd and others in the black community. We struggle to understand senseless acts and we share in the hurt witnessed in our community and across the country.

We are an inclusive network of women leaders in health care, and to be fully inclusive, we cannot remain silent about social injustices. Many leaders of Minnesota’s largest organizations feel the same way. Recently 28 executive leaders of Minnesota companies released a statement to address the recent tragedy. Health care organizations, representing many TRUST members, signing the statement included Allina Health, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Minnesota, Children’s Minnesota, Ecolab, HealthPartners and Medtronic.

The Women’s Health Leadership TRUST stands united with these organizations against acts of racism and violence. If you are interested in getting involved on a personal level, here is a list of resources, from signing petitions to contacting politicians to donating to groups.

It is our hope we can come together for peace, justice and health. Together, we can make change happen.
