June 3 – Diversity and Inclusion – Kim Blue

This activity will provide moderated Q & A with Kim Blue, MSOP, SHRM-CP. As an executive within the Zoom organization, Blue leads the company’s worldwide team of HR business partners. She has extensive experience in leading diversity and inclusion initiatives which have provided her the collective understanding that inclusion allows for all perspectives to have a place at the table that is not conditioned by agreement of being like-minded. With keen insights and a strategic perspective Kim Blue will share data on diversity and inclusion so providers will be aware of variations in care and employment based on biases which include race, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation or economic means. Kim will help identify biases and share ways to bring awareness to provide care customized to the needs of each patient.

He will explore proven ideas and methods that can help us all better prepare for the next pandemic (or the next unexpected or surprising event) that we’ll face.
