BJC Blended Connection Group Celebrates Successful Launch

BJC team members from across the organization gathered November 16, at the BJC Learning Institute for the first BJC Blended Connection group event. The newest Connections group offers BJC's employees of color and all team members the opportunity to connect with one another and learn from each other's diverse experiences and perspectives.

The kick-off event included a panel discussion featuring Teresa Brandon, BJC Behavioral Health clinical operations director; Jerry Fox, BJC senior vice president and chief information officer; and Rick Stevens, Christian Hospital president. Each leader, all of whom are relatively new to BJC, spoke about their careers, why they chose BJC, and their keys to developing the next generation of health care leaders in their respective fields. They also emphasized the importance of BJC Connections groups to the organization.

"BJC Connections groups offer people a platform to be included and help people understand the differences about you that are valuable," Fox said to attendees.
