Promoting greater gender equality across communities via opportunities and resources for women

At Vizient, we recognize the impact women have had and continue to make in today's world. We also understand women face additional structural barriers to be seen, accepted and even to receive the healthcare they need.

Vizient is grateful for the opportunity to partner with organizations who are working to address these inequities by listening to and supporting the women in their community. Here are just a few of the nonprofits #TeamVizient partners with throughout the year to support women and girls:

Girls, Inc.

Girls, Inc.Girls, Inc. inspires all girls to be strong, smart and bold. Their programming includes comprehensive services which address all aspects of a girl’s life and helps her discover and develop her inherent strengths. Girls receive programming to grow up healthy, educated and independent. Girls Inc. also advocates for legislation and policies to increase opportunities and rights for all girls.

Our Women@Vizient DNA has partnered with Girls, Inc. for the past several years – volunteering in Dallas for our annual Community Day event. Vizient also renewed its grant funding for Girls, Inc. in 2023.


ChildCareGroupVizient is proud to support Dallas-based ChildCareGroup (CCG) and their early education programs that are designed to provide a source of free, high-quality childcare for children from birth to age 5 so they can become kindergarten-ready while parents return to work or school. For working parents in the Dallas metro area, the average cost of childcare for one child represents 37 percent of what a family living at the federal poverty line makes in a year. Making childcare accessible for these caregivers helps lower the barrier to economic stability. Family advocates also help parents access services on-site, which fosters greater self-sufficiency among families.

In 2023, Vizient funded a grant in support of their research-based, two-generation approach to early childhood education is designed to help low-income families break the cycle of generational poverty. Additionally, #TeamVizient spent time volunteering for CCG during our 2023 Community Day event.

Lydia’s House

Based in St. Louis, Lydia’s House provides domestic violence survivors and their children a safe place to heal, a voice for justice and an opportunity for better and sustainable lives. Confidential, safe and pet-friendly housing helps victims of domestic violence transition from crisis to safe and stable living. Lydia’s House is the only standalone transitional housing in eastern Missouri and one of the largest in the country.

In 2023, Vizient employees nominated and selected Lydia’s House to receive Vizient’s annual Norman Borlaug Humanitarian Award – a $50,000 grant that is awarded each year to an outstanding organization making a huge impact in their community.

It’s so critically important to address the systemic and societal barriers that hold women back – particularly when it comes to access to reliable childcare, flexible work schedules and pulling double duty at home. That’s why Vizient supports organizations that help women achieve greater economic stability through comprehensive programming, community resources and other opportunities.

Byron JobePresident and CEO, Vizient
For much of my life, I sought to prove that I was equal to my male peers. I was determined to enjoy the same academic, athletic and professional success as the men around me. As I’ve matured, I have learned that I am, ‘different but equal.’ I am capable of achieving anything I desire and my path may look, feel and happen differently. This month I give thanks to the men and women who have shaped and developed my personal and professional growth.
