Description

Diversity & Inclusion

Thursday, June 20, 2019

The communities for which healthcare organizations operate are rapidly diversifying. Not only do they provide care for a diverse community of patients and families, but their workforce is also growing more diverse. This diversity is exhibited in a number of ways, including nationality, race, religion, socioeconomic status, language, age, sexual orientation and physical ability. The business implications and imperatives healthcare organizations face concerning diversity and inclusion are immense. Diverse communities will demand different care needs, improved quality, new or modified operational processes and services, strategic planning for a diverse patient demographic and continuum of care. It is incumbent on healthcare organizations and their leaders to both understand and embrace the needs of diverse populations. Their ability to respond to the needs and preferences of a broader customer base will be critical to their financial and operational survival.

Panel Members

Desirée Chachula, Ph.D., Ed.M., SHRM-SCP, Diversity & Inclusion Manager at Moffitt Cancer Center

Desirée Chachula is the Diversity & Inclusion Manager for Moffitt Cancer Center. She leads Moffitt Diversity Education, which offers a comprehensive portfolio of learning and practice opportunities for healthcare professionals to develop their cultural competency skill, and for team members to build meaningful and enduring diversity and inclusion in their working groups. Additionally, Desirée coordinates and supports the implementation of equity related initiatives at the center including the Cultural and Linguistic Competence Steering Committee’s data monitoring and intervention approaches. Desirée combines years of curriculum and instruction teaching and consulting experience with academic training as a social scientist to bring a scientist-practitioner approach to cultural competence and diversity and inclusion in healthcare. She is an expert on disproportionality- the differences of a population group to an outcome based on shared demographic traits. This work sheds light on policies, practices, beliefs and biases that perpetuate the marginalization of vulnerable populations.
