Greenlining Institute Health Equity Director Anthony Galace testified before the California Assembly Health Committee in support of AB 962, authored by Asm. Autumn Burke to strengthen the state’s supplier diversity among hospitals. The measure, modeled on successful existing supplier diversity programs, would require major California hospitals to report their level of contracting with businesses owned by by people of color, women, LGBT people, and veterans. Galace told the committee that “AB 962 will allow health care, business, and government leaders to engage in an honest and transparent discussion about leveraging the growth of the health sector to benefit diverse businesses and the communities they serve.”
