    Leading experts give keynote presentations and conduct roundtable discussions and experiential workshops

    Focus on evidence-based processes to identify and address bias as it affects patient care, health equity and the workforce

    Participants examine their own knowledge and beliefs on diversity and inclusion and gain insights into the rationale and importance of creating a culture of inclusion for employees and our patients

    New skills and processes that reduce bias and increase recruitment, retention, promotion and development of women and minorities are explored

    Summarize the effects of socioeconomic factors, race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation and other patient characteristics on health inequities and identify ways to mitigate them in your own practice or organization

    Describe the effect of patient and provider biases on healthcare outcomes; describe ways to mitigate the effect of these biases

    Summarize policies and practices that have been shown to contribute to inclusive workplace environments, and enhance recruitment, development, advancement and retention of women and minorities in the healthcare workforce
