Message from Your ACHE Regent
Winter 2016
The term diversity is getting a lot of press these days and can be subject to interpretation. Diversity and inclusion are core values espoused by ACHE, with specific emphasis on advocating inclusion and embracing the differences of those with whom we work and the communities we serve.  As leaders, embracing differences and encouraging those to whom we are responsible for to do the same is an imperative for success.
While Kansas may not be considered a cosmopolitan area compared to other US locations, we still have diversity, whether it be related to age, race, sexual orientation or basic personal beliefs/value systems.  As leaders, it is imperative to develop a heightened sensitivity about these factors when interacting with others and in our everyday decision making.  I encourage you to review ACHE’s website where they have a number of diversity-related policy statements including:

 "Increasing and Sustaining Racial/Ethnic Diversity in Healthcare Management" 
 "Considering the Value of Older, Experienced Healthcare Executives" 
 "Strengthening Healthcare Employment Opportunities for Persons With Disabilities" 
 "The Healthcare Executive's Role in Fostering Inclusion of LGBT Patients and Employees" 

Please feel free to contact me if I can be of any assistance to you.
