HGS3 - HGS3 Day 2 Welcome and Plenary Session #2: Promoting Diversity, Equity and Inclusion in the Health Center Movement

Nov 17, 2020 11:00am ‐ Nov 17, 2020 12:30pm


With its foundation in social justice, the Health Center Movement should be positioned to lead the nation as a model for diversity, equity and inclusivity. During this session, attendees will hear from a national organization that adopted the Learning Collaborative Model to guide entities in developing their abilities to identify areas of concern and develop strategies towards a new dynamic for systemic changes. The session will be an interactive “conversation” between the speaker, reactor panelists and the audience.

Learning Objectives:
  • Recognize the importance of addressing diversity, equity, and inclusion in their workplace.
  • Use lessons learned from two learning collaboratives of health centers on diversity, equity and inclusion.
  • Have tools, resources, and strategies to consider when beginning to address diversity, equity, and inclusion in the workplace.
