The "E" (Equity) in DEI:
Why Diversity and Inclusion Can't Happen Without It

Equity is critical to eliminating systemic racism, and it starts with the workplace.

Diversity and inclusion, or D & I, is a hot topic right now and many organizations are seizing this moment to advance their initiatives. But, without the E - "Equity" - at the center, even the best D & I strategies will fail to build truly inclusive workplaces and employee experiences. Dr. Aletha Maybank, The American Medical Association's (AMA) first ever Chief Health Equity Officer, describes equity as "having the conditions, resources, opportunities and power to achieve optimal health" and is core to an employee's health and wellbeing.

As an extension of our THRIVEx series, we invite you to view this webinar replay with Dr. Maybank to learn how organizations like yours can embed equity and ensure that your entire workforce is empowered and enabled to attain optimal health.

In this replay, you'll learn:

  • What structural inequity is and how to identify it in your organization
  • How your organization can reduce health inequities
  • How socioeconomics and the physical conditions in which people are born, grow, live, work and age create health inequities
  • What actionable strategies your organization can implement today to embed equity into your business and culture
  • How you can empower your organization to reduce inequities and advance structural change
