DE&I issues are the same, YET different in healthcare. Additional topics include:

  • Strategies to address population demographics.

  • Outreach to diverse communities.

  • Equity for marginalized people and occupations

  • Racial Disparities in patient care.

  • Disease Management & Behavioral Change for Specific Populations.


This MBA-level training is ideal for senior leaders, professionals, mid-level managers.  Seminars are customized to address matters that are specific to your industry and organization.  Content accommodates leaders who are somewhat resistant, ambivalent, and ready to change. 

Have your DE&I efforts stalled? 

Typical diversity efforts fail because they ...

  • Seem disconnected from daily work and strategic goals. 

  • Omit executive skill-building.

  • Are one-size-fits-all, which alienates or excites people but doesn't produce meaningful change. 

  • Narrowly focus on a behavior (e.g., implicit bias) or relationships but not on systems and culture.

  • Use trendy methods that lack grounding in behavioral change research.


Those approaches yield a low return on investment (~10% better) and can do more harm than good.​

If you're confused or frustrated by the DE&I consultant merry-go-round, I understand.  I believe that you deserve comprehensive solutions that are based upon evidence. I am here to help your DE&I efforts mature.


We use evidence to go from inertia, to action, to positive results!
