Commitment to Diversity and Inclusion
The "Rooney Rule"
Named after Pittsburgh Steelers chairman Dan Rooney, the Rooney Rule was first instituted within the Steelers organization and later across the entire National Football League. Rooney believed that to truly grow his organization, he would need to bring in new perspectives. His rule required that at least one minority candidate be part of the candidate pool for all coaching and front office job openings.
Similarly, at Highmark Health, our top leaders are committed to interviewing at least one diverse candidate for any open position at the director level and above. A diverse candidate is someone who differs from the makeup of the particular hiring group. He or she could be a person of a different gender, ethnic, cultural or generational background or a veteran or person with a disability. By implementing the "Rooney Rule" at Highmark Health, we ensure that we are building leadership that reflects the diverse consumers, patients and members we are proud to serve.
