The business case for diversity cannot be denied. As the country’s once-minority populations become the majority in many cities and towns, consumers are demanding that more of their providers look like them. In innovation, different experiences and backgrounds enrich ideas. Great talent looks for employers that value diversity. Cultural understanding and sensitivity can make or break a relationship between a clinician and patient and that can affect individual outcomes and population health.
So what’s holding up progress toward racial equity in the workplace and the doctors’ office?
The directive to diversify workplaces must come from the top. On Oct. 19, Modern Healthcare will host a conversation that aims to find solutions for CEOs that go beyond lip service.
