During your interview, your interviewer will want to be assured that you would be a champion for D&I if hired for the position.

      Ryan's Answer

      "I have worked with diverse groups of people most of my career, including my time in college. I am most comfortable, and happy, in this type of environment because it offers me unique learning opportunities. I have a full understanding that different cultures and beliefs can bring a team to its full potential because no stones are left unturned when new ideas are being thought of. In my search for a new position, it was important for me to find a new employer that embraces diversity & inclusion in their workforce and I'm confident I found that here at Kaiser Permanente."

      Ryan's Answer

      "I am so glad you pointed out your need for diversity at Kaiser Permanente. I greatly value diversity. I grew up in a fairly homogeneous town in Montana. When I hit my 20's, it was so important to me to learn about other cultures. During my training, I worked with community volunteer organizations in Peru, inner-city Chicago, and Russia. These experiences have really opened my eyes to working with people from backgrounds different than myself."

      Ryan's Answer

      "My current nursing team is very diverse and our team functions at its best when all members are bringing their own unique perspectives to the table. We all come from different backgrounds, different educations, and different points of view and I truly respect the views of all people to help our team function at its best."
