Survey offers guidance for creating a more diverse C-suite

To better understand what can be done to reduce the barriers diverse leaders face in obtaining, maintaining and advancing their leadership careers, researchers conducted a survey of 50 successful nursing executives and senior leaders from diverse backgrounds. Respondents shared their experiences and recommendations for promoting equity and inclusion in health care organizations in the March issue of Voice of Nursing Leadership. The researchers concluded informed executives must “be intentional in creating inclusive environments and be extra vigilant when developing recruitment, leadership development and career advancement processes.”
