What’s Keeping Healthcare DEI Leaders Up at Night

An increasing number of hospitals and health systems are following the lead of large corporations by creating chief diversity officers (CDOs). Like their corporate peers, health system CDOs are charged with the massive challenge of creating an inclusive workplace culture and increasing workforce diversity, often with too few resources. And unlike their corporate peers, health system CDOs are often asked to also take on their organization’s health equity agenda – ensuring the delivery of culturally competent care, eliminating racial disparities in access and ensuring equitable health outcomes. Is it any wonder many are struggling to make progress? What are the unique challenges facing hospital and health system CDOs? How do you make the business case for DEI in a hospital or healthcare system? Join this webinar for insights (including in-depth interviews with more than 30 leading health system CDOs), explore these questions, and gain practical advice and strategies that work.
