This activity will provide moderated Q & A with Kim Blue. As an executive within the Zoom organization, Blue leads the company’s worldwide team of HR business partners. She has extensive experience in leading diversity and inclusion initiatives which have provided her the collective understanding that inclusion allows for all perspectives to have a place at the table that is not conditioned by agreement of being like-minded. With keen insights and a strategic perspective Kim Blue will share data on diversity and inclusion so providers will be aware of variations in care and employment based on biases which include race, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation or economic means. Kim will help identify biases and share ways to bring awareness to provide care customized to the needs of each patient.
• Examine intentional inclusion and strategies for change in mental, engagement and operating models as nurses their care to reach all patients regardless of race, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation or economic means.
• Discover why mindset matters using key components of a growth mindset, including moving below the surface level of your mindset to get uncomfortable to assure all patients receive care regardless of race, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation or economic means.
• Outline approaches to be more aware of diversity as you recruit and mentor health care providers and leaders.
• Investigate what it looks like to bring your full authentic self to work every day to assure your treatments and offerings to patients and staff are consistent regardless of any perceived or hidden biases.
