This year, Witt/Kieffer conducted its fourth healthcare leadership diversity survey, building on previous surveys conducted in 1998, 2006, 2011. Findings suggest that healthcare leadership has indeed become more diverse. That’s the good news. But is it diverse enough? What still needs to happen for further progress?
These and many more questions will be discussed and debated in this upcoming webinar. Presenters will share comprehensive results of the 43-question 2015 survey, which was supported by groups including The Institute for Diversity in Health Management, the Asian Health Care Leaders Association, NAHSE, and the National Forum for Latino Healthcare Executives, among others. Topics will include how the pool of diverse leadership candidates is shifting, whether these candidates are getting mentoring and other vital career development opportunities, and whether Chief Diversity Officers and other executives are doing as much as they can to promote diverse leadership across the industry. A Q&A period will follow the main program.
- Provide current, robust data on the state of leadership diversity in healthcare
- Share best practices and the degree to which they are supported by diverse professionals who responded to the survey
- Debate the success of recent and proposed initiatives to improve diversity and inclusion across the industry
