Leadership Initiatives

The Institute collaborates with leading health care affinity groups to help fulfill its mission of expanding health care leadership opportunities for ethnically, culturally, and racially diverse individuals, and increasing the number of these individuals entering and advancing in the field. These groups—the National Association of Health Services Executives, the National Forum for Latino Healthcare Executives, and the Asian Health Care Leaders Association —provide the Institute with a direct link to a pipeline of diverse early and mid-career as well as executive-level health care professionals throughout the United States.


The Institute also sponsors the American Leadership Council on Diversity in Healthcare, which brings the most advanced diversity practitioners in health care together to develop standards of practice and share information about new initiatives.
