58X – Creating Greater Gender Diversity in Healthcare Leadership Circles

Tuesday, March 24th

About the Session

Yale New Haven Health System, Dartmouth-Hitchcock, Rush University Medical Center, Tufts Medical Center, University of Chicago Medicine, University of Virginia and Sutter Health are among the founding members of The Equity Collaborative, formed in 2019 to help increase the diversity of healthcare leadership in health systems and medical schools. The Gender Equity is sponsored by The Carol Emmott Foundation. These health systems are committed to moving the matter from important to urgent and have agreed to share best practices, identify metrics and measure progress on their journeys.

This seminar will help you better understand opportunities that can be put in place to allow more women and people of color access to senior leadership. It will also focus on unconscious gender bias and its impact on working relationships. Faculty will discuss strategies to address gender bias and practical skills for building stronger working relationships. The interactive session will include a panel discussion examining how these organizations are putting in place initiatives to address the situation and why it is important. The panel will specifically focus on the effect of unconscious gender bias on women’s careers and how men, when aware of unconscious bias, can enhance their own learning and create better working relationships within the workplace. You will take away strategies for expanding efforts to address gender diversity and inclusion in your organization.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand the case for greater diversity in healthcare leadership.
  • Enhance your organization’s and your own ability to address gender bias.
