We are proud to announce that our CEO, Renée Branch Canady, has been recognized as a Crain’s 2021 Notable Executives in DEI. This recognition is for Executives who have championed, developed, and implemented DEI strategies and initiatives within their organization over the last year. The leaders featured were selected by a Crain’s Detroit Business editors team based on their career accomplishments, track record of success in the field, and effectiveness of their efforts, as outlined in a detailed nomination form.

Renée received this honor for her work implementing incremental changes towards health equity and social justice at MPHI. Under her leadership, MPHI established the Staff of Color Affinity Group, the Center for Health Equity Practice (CHEP), and the Center for Culturally Responsive Engagement (CCRE).

“Renée has been a highly effective leader and an amazing partner as the Michigan Health & Hospital Association addresses the health equity issue and embarks on our DEI journey. She has addressed our entire staff, our Board of Trustees, and our membership on these critical issues, and in every setting, her authenticity and passion shine through,” said MHA CEO Brian Peters.
