Jamilla Pinder Recognized for Promotion of Human Rights

The City of Greensboro will present Pinder with a Human Rights Award this week.

Greensboro – Jamilla Pinder, assistant director for Healthy Communities at Cone Health, is being recognized for going above and beyond to promote human rights in her field.

The City of Greensboro has chosen 10 awardees, including five from the community and five city staff, who promote equity and inclusion in their workplace and who work closely with Greensboro Human Rights boards, commissions and initiatives.

During her more than 20 years at Cone Health, Pinder has worked extensively with uninsured and underinsured residents in Guilford and Rockingham counties. With a bachelor's degree in Agricultural and Environmental Systems - Agribusiness Management from North Carolina A&T State University, Pinder uses her education and experience to help develop and support local coalitions.

Through her work, Pinder has partnered strategically with community-based organizations, other health care systems and faith-based communities to address access to care and the social determinants of health that include healthy food, transportation and housing.

Pinder's contributions during the COVID-19 pandemic were instrumental as she helped set up testing and vaccine sites in the community and met weekly with immigrant leaders to ensure equal access to health information, resources, clinics and vaccines.

A passage from the Book of Psalms inspires her drive and self-confidence: “Truth’s shining light guides me in my choices and decisions; the revelation of your Word makes my pathway clear.”

Awards will be presented at the Human Rights Celebration and Morningside Awards event on Wednesday, June 29 at The Colonnade at Revolution Mill in Greensboro.
