OAKLAND, Calif., Dec. 12 /PRNewswire/ -- Marking its longstanding commitment to diversity in the workplace, Kaiser Permanente today opened its 30th annual National Diversity conference in San Francisco.

This year's conference will focus on Kaiser Permanente's sustained efforts over the past three decades to integrate diversity into every aspect of daily business operations. These efforts have distinguished Kaiser Permanente as an inclusive, socially conscious organization focused on its members, patients and communities.

"The conference represents Kaiser Permanente's long tradition of diversity commitment and the important placement of diversity among the organization's core values," said Ron Knox, Vice President and Chief Diversity Officer.

Kaiser Permanente is a national leader in diversity programs and has successfully translated its diversity into better quality for patients through its culturally competent care and linguistics programs, as well as effective marketing, workforce diversity, and community outreach.

The organization was named one of the Top 50 Companies for Diversity by DiversityInc magazine in 2007 and 2006. It has received a 100 percent rating on the Corporate Equality Index by the Human Rights Campaign for the past three years, and it was awarded the Recognizing Innovation in Multicultural Health Care Award by the National Committee for Quality Assurance.

Most recently, Kaiser Permanente Chairman and Chief Executive Officer George Halvorson was among seven chief executives who received the CEO Diversity Leadership Award from the Diversity Best Practices organization on November 1, 2007.

Presentations planned at this year's conference include a forum entitled: "Affirmative Action: Past, Present and Future," moderated by Professor Charles Ogletree of Harvard Law School, and featuring Los Angeles attorney Connie Rice; Ward Connerly, ch
