How Meaningful Change in Diversity, Equity and Inclusion from Healthcare Leaders Matters
Systems contribute to perpetuating systemic barriers and inequity. In response to social injustices, inequitable outcomes and experiences, many organizations and leaders are making bold commitments to address systemic racism and promote diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI). Advancing these commitments requires more than responding to a call to action, but also developing the efficacy on how and what is needed to change at a micro and macro level.
Leaders within health and social care systems, can seek to advance organizational, structural and system change. Through examination of executive leadership within healthcare organizations across Canada, gaps exist whereby the distribution is often not reflective of the communities and populations served. To disrupt this status quo, understanding the experiences of Black, Indigenous and People of Color (BIPOC) within systems and as professionals across their career trajectory as emerging, senior, and tenured leaders is needed.
Amplifying the voices and perspectives of BIPOC health professionals and policy leaders. The resources to be shared are intended to shed light on levers, enablers, and action to support leadership development and organizational change through an equity lens. Through the reflections of keynote speakers and panelists hear insights on how healthcare executive leadership can cultivate organizational culture, social capital, development, and leadership pipelines that are meaningful in advancing and sustaining change.
