Nominations are open for the 2023 awards. The deadline for nominations is Aug. 14.
What are the Top Diversity Leaders Awards?
The Top Diversity Leaders Awards recognize efforts to advance diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging at the organizational level, in the community and across the healthcare industry. The program includes categories honoring individual leaders with diverse backgrounds, as well as a category honoring organizations that make DEI an integral part of their missions.
Who is eligible?
Eligible individuals must be persons of color (Black/African American, Indigenous, Asian, Pacific Islander, Latino/Latina/Latinx or multiracial) and/or self-identify as LGBTQ+ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer/questioning or other underrepresented sexual orientation or gender identity). They must also serve in a senior executive role in any sector of the healthcare industry. Eligible organizations include hospitals, health systems, insurers, suppliers and other organizations working in the healthcare field.
