2016 Healthcare Diversity Summit

While some gains have been made in regards to increasing diversity in the field of health care management, recent studies continue to suggest that there is still ample room for improvement. With recent changes to our National Health Care System as well as the changing demographics in our country. There is an urgent need to understand the importance of healthcare organizations providing a culturally competent framework to serve such a diverse population. The Healthcare Diversity Council aims to provide a forum for dialogue and awareness. Our main goal is to assist in creating knowledge as to how to build an organizational culture and workforce that is culturally competent and inclusive. It is our vision to begin the transformation that will drive organizations to become culturally competent as they contribute to eliminate health disparities.

The Council is multi-functional and works closely with its members to:

  • Lead, develop and otherwise support organizational diversity development strategies that promote inclusive, respectful, diverse, and culturally competent employment, and services to consumers and communities.
  • Develop and monitor disparity and diversity performance measures.
  • Coordinate diversity development initiatives and groups across Arizona
  • Represent the AZHDC in all diversity development initiatives
