Managing in the Time of COVID-19 & Beyond – Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion: Managing for a New CultureBy : Mariah
Managers have the greatest potential to create a more diverse, equitable, and inclusive work environment. DEI is not a “program” for an organization to do rather a culture shift an organization becomes. This session will focus on individual thinking, mindset, and actions necessary to change. Implementing successful DEI initiatives is a process that requires buy-in from everyone. This webinar will focus on the drivers of DEI and how to create and maintain an equitable environment from the hiring process to the day-to-day operations.

Using Your Data Profile Dashboard – Session 3
This session was presented on June 24, 2021, as the third and final session in the Using Your Data Profile Dashboard webinar series.

Clinician Perspectives on Racism in the Healthcare Workforce
The field of medicine has a torrid history of racism that continues to shape the experiences of patients and providers today. Among the many ways that racism manifests itself in health care is through the lack of representation in our health care workforce and in patient engagement and satisfaction surveys where patients continue to report better care when they see providers who share their racial and ethnic identities. Many members of the health care industry, including those who educate future health care workers, are working hard to dismantle the racism that pervades the field. To adequately eliminate racism in our work, we must be able to identify it, call problems out, call people in, and invest in effective strategies that simultaneously promote health equity and workforce inclusion and belonging. In this webinar, led by Michael Curry, CEO of the Massachusetts League of Community Health Centers, four panelists discuss their perspectives on racism in medicine, how it shapes provider and patient experiences, and strategies to build a more anti-racist, equitable, and inclusive healthcare system.

2021 Workforce Summit – Day 2 – Leading Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
Health centers were born from civil rights efforts and have a long history of working towards diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI). In the last year, many health centers recommitted to this work and are being more intentional about including diverse representation, culture, and perspectives into health center operations and health care delivery. In this session, participants will understand the role of leaders in driving more equitable and inclusive work environments and successful models that can be incorporated into day-to-day practice.
