August Virtual Live Event - Featuring Anna Franklin

Embracing Our Diversity with Authentic Leadership


Why Attend?

You simply cannot outsource DEI and expect lasting change. As leaders, we must both lead by example and empower others to do the same. This is beyond topical information, its an an interactive work session brought by true expert leaders with deep experience in advancing healthcare initiatives. At a minimum you will increase your own capabilities and leave better prepared to advance in this crucial area of organizational and cultural development.

  • If you have a plan, or your organization is actively engaged in DEI initiatives, use this conference to validate, evolve and adjust targets and priorities plus methodologies.

  • If you do not (yet) have a DEI program in place: learn what it takes, best practices for healthcare organizations and its stakeholders, how to negotiate barriers and launch a program of your own and measure its outcomes.
