She is one of more than 500 CEOs who have joined CEO Action for Diversity & Inclusion, pledging to cultivate a more diverse and inclusive culture at AMN Healthcare (NYSE: AMN) and with its business partners.
"A diverse and inclusive workplace benefits everybody – our team members, clients, shareholders, supply and services partners, and the communities where all of us live and work," Salka said. "I'm joining CEO Action for Diversity & Inclusion on behalf of the entire team at AMN.
