Together, Let's Advance Diversity, Inclusion and Health Equity.

Hospitals and other health care institutions are facing a daily onslaught of situations that demand their immediate and often urgent attention: patient care, government scrutiny, quality initiatives, labor issues, and community needs, just to name a few. Moreover, in the midst of all this, they must look beyond day-to-day concerns to the future not just of their organizations, but the health care field itself.

As the only organization devoted exclusively to managing health equity, diversity and inclusion in the health care field, the Institute for Diversity and Health Equity is in a unique position to help your organization plan for a more diverse future while providing the tools to meet today’s challenges.


"The Institute is at the forefront of a critical national conversation about how to promote equitable outcomes within the American health care system.  By aligning thought leaders and promoting accountability and synergies around this important work, the Institute is lighting our way to a brighter, more just tomorrow for vulnerable patient populations. Having been a member of the Institute for more than a decade, it continues to be an honor to work closely with an organization that is leading such a noble agenda."

Kinneil Coltman, DHA, Vice President, Office of Diversity & Inclusion, Carolinas HealthCare System

"The Institute has been an important part of my career for the last 15 years. The insights, education and networking opportunities have been invaluable to me and many senior executives and board members I have the opportunity to work with each day. The Institute has played an integral role in the way I look at the important diversity, inclusion and disparities issues in the field, and certainly beyond the industry."

Jim Gauss, Senior Partner - Healthcare and Board Services, Witt/Kieffer

"The Institute is engaged in a massive effort to address issues of health equity. We are proud to work with the Institute because it recognizes that the veteran and military community is a vulnerable population that needs to be a part of the health care disparity discussion."
