DEIB Task Force

These individuals are volunteering their time and expertise to address various areas of diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging (DEIB) in the AHP organization and healthcare philanthropy profession. On this page you can read the charter and get to know the leaders who make up the AHP DEIB Task Force.

AHP's DEIB Task Force Charter

AHP is committed to making significant progress in our diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging work by June 30, 2021.

The goal of this work will be to increase diversity in all areas of AHP’s work and in the profession of healthcare philanthropy. 

To do this, we are assembling an AHP Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Belonging (DEIB) Taskforce to lead this effort.

The work of the AHP DEIB Taskforce will take three distinct forms:

  1. Review and assess the processes, procedures and policies of AHP, to ensure inclusion and equity, as well as greater diversity and a real sense of belonging, especially as those  processes, procedures and policies pertain to:
    • Choosing volunteer leadership for committees and the Board of Directors
    • Choosing awardees for AHP’s awards and designations (Si Seymour, FAHP and 40 Under 40)
    • Choosing speakers and presenters for AHP’s conferences and other educational content
  2. Develop educational content, guidance and toolkits to assist our membership in their own efforts to recruit, retain, develop and grow people with diverse backgrounds on their own teams.
  3. Reach out and partner with other organizations to increase diversity within the AHP membership.

The Task Force will be made up of a full group as well as subcommittees for each area of work. Task Force and subcommittee members can be drawn from the AHP Board of Directors, membership, external experts and others, and will be supported by the AHP staff. The AHP President and CEO will sit on the Task Force and serve as a roving member of each subcommittee.

The Task Force will set measurable goals to ensure accountability to the membership. These goals will be shared with the membership broadly, and the AHP staff will designate an area on to house this information as well as updates from the Task Force to ensure visibility and transparency.

The Task Force will meet monthly to share findings, progress, and to identify areas for additional needed support. Subcommittees will meet at least monthly, although they can meet more frequently as needed. No less frequently than quarterly, the Task Force will make a report both to the AHP Board of Directors as well as the AHP membership, detailing the progress of their work.
