Redwoods Program

The Redwoods Program is named after the strong Redwood trees that grow in Northern California. Transplanting debilitates them. Raising them from seed to sapling endows longevity. The process by which these trees are cultivated from seeds to their current strong and tall stature is analogous to how DaVita wants to help grow its future leaders from universities across the nation. The Redwoods Leadership Development Program provides unparalleled development experience, mentorship by senior management, and training that will empower your development into a great leader.
