Distinguished Education Partnership of the Year Award: Kaiser Permanente

Each year, WABS highlights one partner for the Distinguished Education Partnership of the Year Award that we present at the Showcase of Success. The award is presented to organizations and companies that demonstrate a commitment of time, talent, and resources to help further WABS’ mission of ensuring that each and every student graduates career and college ready.

Congratulations to the 2022 awardee Kaiser Permanente!

Kaiser Permanente has provided exemplary support via volunteerism on an institutional and individual level with the ACCESS STEM program. Additionally, Kaiser Permanente has provided significant financial support for both the Natural Leaders and ACCESS STEM programs over multiple years and has expressed interest in finding additional areas of WABS programs to support. Finally, we have been incredibly impressed with Kaiser Permanente’s continued engagement and commitment to WABS programming even in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic.

We know that the healthcare sector has experienced the devastating impacts of the pandemic; Kaiser Permanente’s continued involvement truly demonstrates the institution’s commitment to helping us broaden student impact and access to career pathways in our region through meaningful partnerships with our teachers and educators.

WABS is so grateful to work with the Kaiser Permanente team – thank you for the continued partnership, expertise, and dedication.
