2017 GCHEG Annual Dinner
By: Tracy M. Pryor, MBA

GCHEG 2017 Annual Dinner

Theme: Diversity in Healthcare Management: Value-Added Business Sense

The 2017 Annual Dinner took place on Wednesday, April 5, at The Renaissance Charlotte Suites Hotel. More than 80 chapter members as well as guests joined together for an evening of food, networking, and a most important discussion on diversity in the healthcare industry. After introductions and recognition of board members as well as new members and fellows, the panelists took their seats and the engagement began. Panelists included an array of current diversity leaders from both Carolinas Health Care System and Novant Health. Nicholas Wharton, Interim President and CEO of the Urban League of Central Carolinas moderated the talk. Panelists started by sharing what diversity and inclusion meant to each of them. They went on to discuss diversity and inclusion as a healthcare business case and how important it is for leaders to understand that there is an associated return on investment with this vital business case. The panelists also talked about the importance of cultural competency and the types of programs that must be in place within an organization to influence such culture changes – specifically, a culture that embraces everyone, respects differences, and tailors the experience to each individuals unique needs. Ultimately, everyone agreed that the true diversity and inclusion champions must start at the very top and cascade down through the organization.

We excitedly look forward to you joining us at our next GCHEG educational event!
