Home Care Summit - Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

Date: May 26, 2021

Time: 6:30 AM - 10:00 AM

Location: Webinar

Registration: OnlineRegistration Form


Diversity measures our ability to share differences, build relationships, and be creative thinkers. Inclusion measures our ability to embrace these differences through participation. Implicit bias limits our ability to be successful in diversity and inclusion efforts without even knowing it.  Understanding the dynamics of diversity and inclusion will help shape our ability to see the blind spots of implicit bias that exists within.  While training and mentorship expedite professional development, engaging diverse ideas, perspectives, and insight leads to improved customer experience, faster innovation, and greater retention rates. This is true when implicit bias does not block the view.  The world is on the cusp of change and the future requires leaders willing to see beyond the surface.

At the conclusion of this session, participants will be able to:

  • Define and improve knowledge-base of implicit biases
  • Identify biases that contribute to the lack of diversity
  • Examine and engage active approaches to defer anger and anxiety
  • Describe effective strategies for engaging inclusive conversations
  • Explore options to improve communication that reduce conflict

Allina Health used actionable data to identify potential areas of bias, then applied the right interventions to decrease implicit biases. For example, data revealed that the African American populations receiving care at Allina Health were not enrolling in hospice programs when they were eligible because the hospitalists weren’t referring African Americans at the same rate as other populations. Join Vivian Anugwom, Health Equity Manager at Allina Health, to learn how she led a team to implement new measures, including implicit bias trainings, to help address and overcome these biases to ensure health equity for all. During this webinar, Vivian will help attendees:

  • Understand how Allina Health uses data to identify disparities.
  • Define bias and its impact on health disparities.
