Diversity and Inclusion (summary from best practices)

» Increasing diversity and inclusion cannot be accomplished by one department or silo. It must be embedded in a system wide manner so that all leaders are held accountable for driving and sustaining it.

» Leaders set the tone for promoting diversity and cultural competence within the organization by modeling respectful behavior and recruiting a diverse team.

» Creating a culture of diversity should be consistent and deliberate, integrating patient care, education, research, and community partnerships.

» Establishing a Diversity Leadership Council can help to increase the diversity of senior executive staff and board members.

» It is important to understand and meet the needs of underserved patients and employees, including those who are LGBTQI.
