“MaineHealth is Northern New England‘s largest healthcare system with over 22,000 employees. This past year we committed to enhance our culture by more deeply imbedding DEI within our system‘s values. We have engaged Dr. Joy to assist with the education/awareness building of more than 160 volunteer Trustees, our top leadership team, and eventually our entire care team. Dr. Joy has demonstrated great skill in both group and individual interactions with these leaders. Dr. Joy approaches her DEI consulting work with a deep knowledge and experience base. She listens and makes people feel comfortable in an area that is uncomfortable for many of us as we wrestle with personal bias and the need for change. And, she brings an incredible sense of humor and humility to her work.” – William L. Caron, Jr., Chief Executive Officer, MaineHealth
