Diversity, equity and inclusion are imperative for the vitality of the communities we serve and critical to the success of our industry. As healthcare leaders, we are uniquely positioned and ethically responsible for ensuring our patients have access to high-quality care. We must also build environments where our providers and staff feel accepted, safe and secure.
Just as bias, inequities and discrimination can become deeply entrenched in a system, so can diversity, equity and inclusion. Correcting course requires insight, tenacity and transparency – but healthcare leaders can’t do it alone. With the right resources, however, leaders can find success.
At the Nashville Health Care Council, we believe the right resources are found through collaboration. To discover how to improve DEI and health equity, we can learn from those we serve – and from each other.
