System Chief Human Resources Officer Receives Leadership Excellence Award by National Diversity Council

Carolinas HealthCare System's Chief Human Resources Officer and Executive Vice President Debra Plousha Moore was one of only 12 executives recognized by the National Diversity Council for demonstrating exceptional leadership in their organizations.

Plousha Moore was awarded the Council’s Leadership Excellence Award at the 2014 Philadelphia Diversity & Leadership Conference.

“I feel privileged to join a select group of individuals honored for leading and building inclusive, diverse organizations across the nation,” Plousha Moore said. “To be recognized with this award at a gala keynoted by one of the world’s most respected leaders, General Colin Powell, was a humbling honor. We are proud of Carolinas HealthCare System’s ongoing commitment to our teammates and patients. Our talents and abilities are enhanced by the cultural expertise we bring to the workplace and to our care environments.”

Recipients of the Leadership Excellence Award are nominated by peers, and their nominations undergo a rigorous selection process. To qualify, individuals must demonstrate professional leadership, effective and efficient management, innovation and vision. Furthermore, they must have had a significant impact on their organization, continually develop themselves and others, and operate with the highest integrity and ethical behavior. Three leaders each year are selected in each of the following categories: corporate, education, legal and medical.

In June 2014, Carolinas HealthCare System was named a “Best Place to Work” by the national leadership organization, Diversity MBA. The System was ranked No. 7 in the 2014 “50 Out Front Companies” list for being a top place for diverse and women managers to work. The System demonstrated measurable successes in building a diverse and culturally competent workforce, as well as a commitment by leadership to continue such successes.
