G. Feeling Heard and Respected: A Grassroot Approach to DEIB

Large organizations can make a significant impact when they take a grassroots approach to promoting diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging (DEIB) so everyone feels heard and respected. This session will focus on the DEIB work carried out by Hartford HealthCare (HCC), whose 41,000 employees provide healthcare services in nearly 500 locations throughout Connecticut. Presenters will explain how the promotion of DEIB has become a shared mission for all of HHC’s many departments, including its Center for Healthy Aging. Discover how large organizations can take a grassroots approach to promoting DEIB, the steps you can take to get started, and the keys to maintaining and measuring sustainable change.
