BLIND SPOTS OF DIVERSITY, INCLUSION & IMPLICIT BIAS

Diversity measures our ability to share differences, build relationships, and be creative thinkers. Inclusion measures our ability to embrace these differences through participation. Implicit bias limits our ability to be successful in diversity and inclusion efforts without even knowing it. Understanding the dynamics of diversity and inclusion will help shape our ability to see the blind spots of implicit bias that exists within. While training and mentorship expedite professional development, engaging diverse ideas, perspectives, and insight leads to improved customer experience, faster innovation, and greater retention rates. This is true when implicit bias does not block the view. The world is on the cusp of change and the future requires leaders willing to see beyond the surface.

ADDRESSING HEALTH EQUITY IN THE NEW NORMAL
Allina Health used actionable data to identify potential areas of bias, then applied the right interventions to decrease implicit biases. For example, data revealed that the African American populations receiving care at Allina Health were not enrolling in hospice programs when they were eligible because the hospitalists weren’t referring African Americans at the same rate as other populations. Join Vivian Anugwom, Health Equity Manager at Allina Health, to learn how she led a team to implement new measures, including implicit bias trainings, to help address and overcome these biases to ensure health equity for all.
