Championing Change: Breaking Organizational Barriers to Promote Workforce Diversity

Tuesday, August 29, 2023, at 2:00pm

The Alliance Conversation Series brings you cost-free, fast-paced collaborative opportunities that highlight successful donation and transplantation practices across the country. Through shared insight, multidisciplinary experts identify solutions to critical challenges affecting the community of practice and actively share them for open discussion and broader knowledge of effective practices.

The sessions encourage real-time feedback and participation from viewers.

Overview: Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging (DEIB) has become a critical focus within the healthcare community which has prompted OPOs, hospitals, and transplant centers to take a hard look at their current practices to identify improvement strategies and promote positive changes to their workplace culture. DEIB is achieved through the understanding and acceptance of all unique experiences and perspectives, as well as the validation of the differences that exist between races, ethnicities, genders, ages, skill sets, and abilities. To improve an organization’s culture, we must start from within and that goes far beyond the recruitment and hiring of employees. Join the discussion to learn more about practices being explored and implemented at organizations across the country!

Added Learning Opportunity (optional) We encourage you to continue with us for an optional 30-minute Breakout Session that will take place following this session at 3pm ET/2pm CT/ 1pm MT/12 pm PT. These breakout discussions will serve as a value opportunity to connect with your peers in the community in small, collaborative groups and apply lessons learned from the general session. Following the breakout session, we will reconvene with our speakers to share key insights and strategies identified.
