Director of the Diversity & Inclusion Committee, Veronique Perry, MHA, MBA, welcomed Dr. Marquissa Beverly to the Chapter and the D&I committee. Dr. Beverly is the Medical Director and Partner Physician for Upperline Health (Ankle and Foot Center of Tampa Bay).
Also, Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion has been a hot topic recently. According to a survey of 41 of the largest health organizations in the United States by Leverage Network, only 13% of people of color hold seats on a Board of Directors, with only 3% being black women. While we have made some progress, we have a long road ahead.
With that in mind, what are some ways in which your organization is addressing Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion? Would you like additional resources on DE&I? What are some of the things you would like to see in future newsletters, educational presentations, etc. from the Diversity and Inclusion committee?
Veronique is seeking your input on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion, so please contact us.
