Embracing workplace diversity is a priority for health care organizations given the increasing diversity of stakeholders. Evidence shows that administrators and providers who share personal characteristics, cultural identities, common community, and ancestral histories with the communities they serve may play a vital role in making a positive difference in the lives of marginalized groups.
However, evidence also shows that members of underrepresented groups face increased demands and stressors. Some demands and stressors come from within the workplace (e.g., racism, imposter syndrome, leadership gaps, cultural insensitivity), while others are inherent in the role of advocating for and responding to the needs of marginalized groups (e.g.,vicarious trauma, going it alone, constant representation and interpretation of population issues and needs).
Participants heard leaders from association member Hennepin Healthcare, in Minneapolis, share institutional strategies to support the development and integration of leaders from underrepresented populations.
