On the frontlines of American civil rights

Geneva Craig was a teenager, full of promise and righteous anger, when she crossed the Edmund Pettus Bridge.

Employee Health nurse Geneva Craig, RN, PhD, recounts the early days of the civil rights movement in Selma, Alabama, when she marched on the Edmund Pettus Bridge on that bloody Sunday, and the advice Martin Luther King Jr. gave her.


After the civil unrest in summer 2020, it became apparent that America — and Asante — must do more to promote social justice and try to eliminate biases. The result was the Equity, Diversity and Inclusion committee.

The team of employees and leaders is focusing on employee engagement, patient engagement, community outreach, policy management, employee and leadership development, and communications

The intent of the work not only is to embrace diversity at Asante, but to recognize our commonalities. If you are interested in the work of equity, diversity and inclusionemail us with your comments and suggestions.
