Manager, Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, & Employee Engagement
"The inclusive, compassionate care Jackson Health System delivers, along with our policies and practices relating to patient and employment non-discrimination, visitation, and cultural competency training for staff, is reinforced by our consistent recognition as a “Leader in LGBT Healthcare Equality” by the Human Rights Campaign’s Healthcare Equality Index (HEI) report. We take great pride in this achievement and in our strong commitment to diversity and the LGBT community."
Dr. Mari Campuzano is the manager of diversity, equity, inclusion and employee engagement at Jackson Health System, leading the organization’s DEI strategy to support employees’ learning, development, and performance. Jackson is comprised of just over 13,000 team members from diverse backgrounds and experience, reflecting the diversity of its immediate community and patient population. In her role, Mari works with leaders across the system to strengthen advocacy efforts for employees and patients, increase awareness and education of inclusion strategies, and to ensure equitable practices in healthcare.
Prior to joining Jackson, Mari was part of the Office of Diversity and Inclusion at Weill Cornell Medicine in New York where she supported recruitment, retention, and engagement of residents and faculty underrepresented in medicine (URIM). She collaborated with DEI subject matter experts across the nation to provide professional development, research, and grant opportunities for the medical school’s URIM groups.
Dr. Campuzano earned her doctorate in Human and Organizational Learning at The George Washington University in Washington, DC, and her Master’s in Educational Leadership and Bachelor’s in Liberal Studies, both from Florida International University. She also holds certificates in Women’s Studies, Talent Acquisition, and Corporate Communications from Cornell University. Mari has published research centered on underrepresented populations in dominant contexts including healthcare, professional sports, and male-dominated industries.
