Medi-Cal Plan Seeks Chief Diversity Officer, Again
The man hired to serve as chief diversity officer for the Gold Coast Health Plan in a search process that took more than a year resigned after five months on the job. Announced in March, Douglas C. Freeman's hiring filled a position mandated in an ordinance passed in 2015 by the Ventura County Board of Supervisors. The ordinance was triggered by allegations involving the health plan's workplace environment, including allegedly racist posters displayed at Gold Coast's main offices. (Kisken, 10/2)
