2015, a year worth remembering! What originally started with two innovative minds now has over 2,000 members nationwide. This reassures that our vision to building a multi-generational talented community is very meaningful, not only to young professionals, but to the future of Kaiser Permanente. Additionally, here are some amazing stats we are proud to have accomplished in 2015:

  1. 63% membership growth! (2014-2015)
  2. New chapters in four new states! (CO, HI, MAS, and NW!)
  3. New Steering Board inauguration
  4. Launch of Career Stories, Professional Development, Community Benefit, and Emerging Leaders Circle
  5. Augmented work transparency, collaboration, and efficiency through adoption of new technology
  6. Increase in content viewing via social media and video

As we prepare for 2016, the genKP leadership team met early in December for a two day summit. As the committees and regional champions came together, we established our 2016 goal is to keep pushing boundaries and elevate the conversation for Millennials to partake a bigger role in the organization. To do this, we crafted a collaborative strategy including:

  1. Improved community engagement via compelling content, transparency, and active participation
  2. Further develop robust programs on leadership skills and mentorship
  3. Revamping genkp.com
  4. Partner with fellow MBRGs for future hosted events
  5. Increased awareness and public relation
  6. Better attendance and promotion of community service within genKP
  7. Create Thrive events promoting health and exercise

What is important to note from our accomplishments and future plans is that each members’ contribution is a voluntary effort to provide value to KP. But above all, it is about creating self-fulfilling opportunities that can be leveraged to leadership roles. We are incredibly grateful for each and everyone’s input, and we want to carry this momentum onwards to 2016. Stay tuned!
