Tamiko L. Stanley is vice president and chief Diversity Equity and Inclusion (DEI) officer for Luminis Health.
Stanley joined Luminis Health Anne Arundel Medical Center (LHAAMC) in 2017 as director and head of diversity equity and inclusion. During her tenure, she has been at the forefront of the design and execution of innovative strategies that have enhanced workforce diversity, cultural inclusion, and increased outcomes in health equity for patients. By establishing business resource groups, ambassador committees, and accountability councils, she has empowered staff to model inclusive behaviors and reduce implicit bias.
She was also instrumental in the creation of the health system’s Health Equity and Anti-Racism Task (HEART) Force, consisting of members of the board of trustees, senior leaders, medical staff, community partners and stakeholders.
Stanley’s work has directly contributed to LHAAMC receiving a score of 100 from the Healthcare Equality Index and being named a Leader in LGBTQ Healthcare Equality in 2020 by the Human Rights Campaign Foundation, as well as earning the honor of the 2019 Carolyn Boone Lewis Equity of Care Award from the American Hospital Association — an award bestowed to only a few hospitals in the country. Stanley was named a 2021 Top 100 Diversity Officers by the National Diversity Council.
Stanley came to Luminis Health from Pittsburgh, PA., where she worked in the diversity field for a number of large organizations, including FedEx Supply Chain, the City of Pittsburgh, and the Pittsburgh Pirates.
During her time with the City of Pittsburgh, she established innovative strategies that increased diversity and employee engagement, enhanced an inclusive work culture, and developed strong community partnerships. In 2008, Stanley launched the highly successful DiverseCity 365 Program to recognize, promote, and grow a diverse and vibrant Pittsburgh culture 365 days a year. The program increased employment application diversity more than 300%, and expanded both City workforce diversity and employee engagement. The initiative created more than 850 community partnerships across the city, state, and the country. Over a six year period, this network of partnerships strengthened race relations and fostered inclusive developments.
Due to the program’s successes, Stanley was awarded various leadership and industry honors, including the New Pittsburgh Courier 40 Under 40, the Talk Magazine Pennsylvania Trail Blazer Award, the Allegheny County Circle Of Courage Award, the WQED Black Excellence Award, the National Diversity Council Most Powerful Woman Award, the Society of Human Resources People Do Matter Award, the ONYX Woman Magazine’s Top 25 Women of the Millennium award, the YWCA Racial Justice Award, the Pittsburgh Living Legend Award, and many others.
