Trinity Health of New England announced Monday that it is working to achieve “gender parity throughout its corporate leadership structure” by 2030.

The health system, which operates St. Francis Hospital in Hartford and several other hospitals and practices groups in Connecticut and Massachusetts, said it is working toward its new goal in partnership with Paradigm for Parity, a coalition of business executives, board members and academics that helps companies accelerate gender equity-focused changes in senior leadership posts.

“As part of our mission and core values, we pride ourselves on our ability to ensure an equitable workplace and are proud to partner with the Paradigm for Parity movement to continue to work towards fully addressing the gender imbalance prevalent in corporate leadership positions,” said Trinity Health President and CEO Reginald Eadie. “We are committed to catalyzing change and look forward to working with the coalition and the other companies that have joined the movement to accelerate the pace of achieving gender parity and ensure women of all races, cultures and backgrounds can succeed and thrive in the workplace.”

In the near term, Trinity Health officials said they will work to “significantly increase” the number of women in senior operating roles, with an initial goal of at least 30% representation in all leadership groups. Other company goals include eliminating or minimizing unconscious bias in the workplace; basing career progress on business results and performance, rather than physical presence in the office; and providing sponsors to women well positioned for long-term success.

The health system also plans to release regular reports on its progress.

Trinity officials said they’ve already introduced an unconscious bias training program for employees, and have plans to secure more goods and services from diverse suppliers, including women- and minority-owned businesses.
