YOU Can Help Change the Face of Health Care’s Future  

"[Being members of the Institute for Diversity in Health Management has given us] the opportunity to speak and publish widely with the support of the Institute. Two recent major research projects were conducted in association with the Institute: "Advancing Diversity and Leadership in Healthcare" and "Building the Business Case: Healthcare Diversity Leadership- A National Survey Report."  In addition to working to "move the dial" on diversity issues, we also have participated in national Institute meetings, where our staff has received quality education and exposure to diversity leaders who have assisted in our consulting and executive search work.

Hospitals and other health care institutions are faced with a daily onslaught of situations that demand their immediate and often urgent attention: patient care, government scrutiny, quality initiatives, labor issues, and community needs, just to name a few. And in the midst of all this, they must look beyond day-to-day concerns to the future not just of their individual organizations, but the health care field itself.


That future will be defined by increasingly diverse communities with increasingly complex health care needs, and the survival of hospitals depends to a great degree on their ability to attract, retain, and develop the top-quality, diverse professionals who will best serve those communities and fulfill those needs.


As the only organization devoted exclusively to managing diversity in the health care field, the Institute for Diversity in Health Management is in a unique position to help you plan for a more diverse future while providing you with the tools to meet today’s challenges. We invite you to play an important role in strengthening the health care workforce by becoming an Institutional Member of the Institute.
