Tuesday, January 31, 2017

1:00pm -2:30pm ET (12:00pm CT; 11:00am MT; 10:00am PT)
Duration: 90 minutes


Register for the Institute for Diversity in Health Management webinar and hear from experts on best practices related to inclusive, local hiring that will help build the pipeline for a health community.


Debbi Perkul, senior workforce development professional at University Hospitals in Cleveland, will discuss how the health system is working in partnership with community-based organizations to connect local and diverse residents from disinvested surrounding neighborhoods to available frontline positions. In addition, David Zuckerman, manager for healthcare engagement at The Democracy Collaborative, will share how health systems can implement "outside in" and "inside up" strategies for local hiring policies and become a more intentional anchor to better the welfare of the low-income communities they serve. He also will discuss The Democracy Collaborative’ s toolkit, which examines this topic and is the first in the organization's Hospitals Aligned for Healthy Communities toolkit series.
