Belonging Advisory Council

MultiCare's Belonging Advisory Council members

This group advises MultiCare’s Belonging Leadership Group: Bill Robertson, President and CEO; Florence Chang, COO; and Kevin B. Dull, CHPO, as the Belonging Program continues to grow and evolve, and serves as a resource for fellow employees.
