On April 7, 2021 Diane Comer was announced as Kaiser Permanente’s new Chief Information and Technology Officer (CITO). In his announcement, Greg A. Adams, Chair and CEO of Kaiser Permanente, shared the following:

What Our People Say
Solutions Consultant - Specialist,

“Kaiser Permanente is very flexible and supportive of mothers. As a full-time working mother of two young boys, it is very helpful to work remotely. When my kids are sick, my boss is very flexible, so I can care for them until they are well. This is huge for their well-being, as well as mine.”
