Racial Inequity in Healthcare 

 Virtual Meeting 

8:00- 9:00 AM CT 


In 2003, the Institute of Medicine published a report describing the need to: increase the proportion of underrepresented minority groups in the health-care workforce; integrate cross-cultural education into health- care training; and, advance efforts to identify sources of disparities and promising interventions. More than a decade later, 91 percent of hospital CEOs are whiteand while people of color represent 31 percent of hospital patients nationally, they comprise only:

  • 14% of hospital board members
  • 12% of executive leadership positions, and
  • 17% of first- and mid-level management positions

These disparities in the leadership ranks of the healthcare industry are part and parcel of the health disparities in communities of color nationally and here in Chicago, where inequalities persist and, in some cases have widened in such indicators as low birthweight, heart disease, stroke, infant mortality and mortality in general.


Post-Election  By attending this session, you will learn: 

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