Diversity and Inclusion in Healthcare Advancement: Changing Behaviors and Outcomes

Published:  06/04/2019

Whitepaper Diversity CoverHealth care is paying close attention to disparities associated with diverse populations, including discussions about risk factors, access to health and the need for new, diverse strategies for delivery of quality health care. Success in philanthropic engagement of diverse populations will require similarly focused attention — on awareness, access and diverse strategies for recruiting talent and engaging the broadest possible spectrum of potential volunteers and donors. Fundraising leaders can no longer secure the fundraising revenue their organizations require without building and retaining diverse boards, executive teams and advancement teams and building fundraising programs that engage all potential donors.

In collaboration with AHP, Aspen Leadership Group (ALG) has released a new whitepaper addressing these issues, "Diversity and Inclusion in Healthcare Advancement: Changing Behaviors and Outcomes." In it, ALG authors Angelique S.C. Grant, Ph.D., and Ron Schiller introduce research, break down assumptions that impede progress, and outline proactive strategies for health care advancement leaders to make sustainable change in diversity and inclusion at their organizations.
