Building a Healthy Future

More than 600 frontline workers and leaders of the Coalition of Kaiser Permanente Unions will meet in Anaheim, California, March 26 - 29, looking to the future. Or more specifically, building a healthy future—one based on innovation, lifelong learning and total health for the workforce and the members, patients and communities we serve.

That’s the theme of this year’s Union Delegate Conference, a remarkable gathering that combines union business, skill building, personal networking and leadership development. 2015 National Bargaining, which kicks off the day after the conference closes, will be a focus of discussions. Featured speakers will include:

  • Elizabeth Shuler, secretary-treasurer, AFL-CIO
  • Dave Regan, president, SEIU-UHW
  • Rishi Manchanda, MD, public health author and activist

In addition, Bernard J. Tyson, Kaiser Permanente chairman and CEO, and Hal Ruddick, executive director of the union coalition, will join the delegates in a hands-on exercise in product design and innovation. They’ll share their observations on the design process and also answer questions on key issues facing KP and its workforce.

Twitter contest!

Inspire your colleagues by tweeting about how you're helping to inspire, innovate and transform KP.

Two dozen workshops

The event also will include more than two dozen workshops to help delegates sharpen their organizing skills, lead workplace change and innovation, and manage their own health and wellness.
