BRENTWOOD, Tenn. Dec. 11, 2019 – Three members of Brookdale Senior Living’s Board of Directors and one former director are named to WomenInc. Magazine’s 2019 Most Influential Corporate Directors list. Brookdale’s President, CEO and Director Lucinda M. Baier, along with current board members Rita Johnson-Mills and Denise W. Warren and former director the Honorable Jackie M. Clegg, are recognized in the upcoming winter 2019 edition of the magazine.
“We are pleased to receive this recognition as evidence of Brookdale’s commitment to diversity,” said Baier. “Having a diverse boardroom creates a more collaborative working environment and it speaks volumes to employees and customers. It shows them our leadership is reflective of who they are.” Over half of Brookdale’s residents are women, about three-quarters of its associates are women and, according to a report in the November 2014 Journal of Health Care for the Poor and Underserved, well over three-quarters of healthcare decisions are made by women.
