Introducing Executive Diversity Career Navigator! See It … To Be It!

Specifically for diverse healthcare professionals, the Executive Diversity Career Navigator Version 1.0, which launched April 27, features an array of career development tools and resources (the vast majority are complimentary) designed to empower diverse healthcare professionals through every stage of their careers. Unlike any other career development website, EDCN features the “voice” of diverse senior-level healthcare executives, sharing the successful strategies they have developed through their unique career journeys. EDCN is a collaborative effort between the following healthcare organizations dedicated to advancing executive diversity:

 

  • American College of Healthcare Executives
  • Asian Healthcare Leaders Forum
  • Institute for Diversity in Health Management
  • LGBT Forum
  • National Association of Health Services Executives
  • National Association for Latino Healthcare Executives

 

We invite diverse healthcare executives to visit edcnavigator.org, and let us know what you think! Please share news of this new resource with your diverse healthcare professional colleagues. We look forward to hearing from you.

The Thomas C. Dolan Executive Diversity Program—Now Accepting Applicants

Please help us spread the word about the open application period for the 2018 Thomas C. Dolan Executive Diversity Program (ache.org/ExecutiveDiversity).

During this year-long program, scholars benefit from specialized curriculum opportunities to develop strategies for successful navigation of potential career challenges and enhance executive presence, one-on-one interaction with a specially selected mentor, and participation in formal leadership education and career assessments. Enhanced self-awareness, critical leadership skills, and an expanded network of leaders will help prepare scholars to ascend to C-suite roles in hospitals, health systems and other healthcare organizations.

Visit ache.org/ExecutiveDiversity for more information or to apply. If you have questions about the program, please contact Cie Armstead, director, Diversity and Inclusion, ACHE, at carmstead@ache.org or (312) 424-9306.
