Measure to Improve
We believe measurement is a key ingredient in driving outcomes. We commit to transparently tracking a broad set of metrics related to Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging both at our organization and for our members. These data will inform our action.
For healthcare to work for everyone, we believe people from all backgrounds must have a place in the ecosystem. We commit to expanding opportunities at The Academy, with a specific focus on those that are currently or historically underrepresented. Moreover, we will work across the industry to diversify the pipeline for executive board seats and leadership positions.
Create Space for Candid Dialogue
At its core, The Academy creates spaces for learning and understanding. We commit to intentionally creating spaces where our members and team can meaningfully connect around topics that will expand thinking and evolve approaches in support of health equity, diversity, inclusion, and belonging.
Meaningfully Devote our Resources
Investment of time and resources go hand-in-hand with prioritization. We commit to working with our members to encourage meaningful investment toward DEI initiatives that move the needle. Similarly, The Academy will support investment of staff time and resources towards causes that improve health equity and outcomes in our community.
Commitments require accountability. We will strive for accountability by working with our research council, advisory committees, and other member bodies to ensure we’re living up to our objectives. We will charge these groups with helping us emphasize action and ensure that Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Belonging are truly the way we do all things at The Academy.
