March 24 – Equitable Partnership Building
Sustainable DEI approaches require strategic, social partnerships that can protect your organizational vulnerabilities and bolster long-term goals. Nurturing relationships with civic groups or organizations that are also attempting to enhance their DEI presence can be difficult. We often say “yes” to everyone in the afterglow of DEI initialization, but how can we find partners to do what we can’t do? How do we collaborate with partners who increase our DEI credibility? This session educates healthcare leaders on the ‘Win When Partnership Assessment Framework’ and how to identify and nurture non-traditional partnerships.
