About this event

ASHHRA and ACHE of Massachusetts invite you for a 1.5 Virtual ACHE Face to Face Credit Session!

In the drive for gender equity, healthcare leaders have acknowledged the need for fully inclusive gender equity that recognizes the intersectionality of race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, and other dimensions of identity. Efforts to improve women representation in the senior ranks of healthcare management must include women from all backgrounds and experiences. When intersectionality considerations are incorporated into gender equity strategies, organizations can reap tangible, proven benefits including better talent recruitment and retention, stronger DEI outcomes, and improved organizational performance.

Learning Objectives

  • Define the concepts of gender equity and intersectionality in the context of healthcare leadership
  • Current state of women in healthcare management, including data and research on women of color and women with differing abilities and sexual orientation
  • The essential role of allies—men and non-racially diverse persons—in the gender equity and intersectionality work
  • How gender equity and intersectionality may fit into an organization’s traditional diversity and inclusion strategies and initiatives
  • How incorporating gender equity and intersectionality principles can enhance talent management, support DEI goals and improve organizational performance
  • The disparate impact on women of color and women with differing abilities and sexual orientations regarding key aspects of gender diversity, such as pay equity, positions on boards, promotion, recruitment, selection and mentoring/sponsorship
  • Organizational benefits of effective application of gender equity and intersectionality principles
  • Resources and tools to change organizational culture, policies and procedures to address structural racism and sexism

This program is valued as 1.5 Hours of ACHE Face to Face Credits.
