Janet Stovall, Inclusion Advocate, Executive Communications Manager with UPS
Commitment to Diversity: Real Problems, Real Numbers, Real Consequences
Join us for inclusion advocate Janet Stovall and CAP member panelists as we share a candid dialogue about racism–the unspoken word in almost every room. Diversity is bigger than race and racism is nothing new. Racism has a long, storied history in America. Still, the sting of it infects every part of American life, including our own hospitals, organizations, and the entire health care system. Imagine a world where the color of someone’s skin doesn’t dictate whether they’ll live or die. Imagine a workplace where employees feel safe and can bring their unassimilated, authentic selves to work every day because their differences are recognized and valued. Imagine a place where the lessons we learn about diversity at work actually transform how we think, what we say, and what we do outside of work. That can happen when organizations get single-minded about racism. The question is: How do we make that happen?
