Healthcare executives increasingly want to identify and develop diverse leaders who can contribute different perspectives on issues and help accelerate industry innovation and transformation.
In 2019, NCHF launched the Diverse Healthcare Leaders Mentorship Program to help cultivate a diverse pipeline of leaders in healthcare. In the inaugural class, eight women and men
(pictured right) from underrepresented communities and who are already employed in healthcare were paired with executive leader mentors from health systems, hospitals and NCHA in a 12 month program. Now in its 3rd year, the program has grown significantly and is generating tremendous interest.

As North Carolina demographics continue to shift, hospitals and health systems are increasingly focused on becoming more reflective of the patients and communities they serve.

Having a diverse workplace is one of the greatest assets of any organization to improving employee morale and promoting retention – both of which are critical to combatting growing healthcare workforce shortages.

Encouraging diversity in the workplace facilitates different perspectives that generate an abundance of distinct ideas and accelerates innovation for complex problems.

NCHA is committed to building a diverse pipeline of underrepresented men and women into healthcare leaders that will shape and transform health in NC. In 2019, we launched the Diverse Healthcare Leaders Mentorship Program to connect leaders who are willing to share their knowledge and experience to high-achieving women and men from underrepresented communities.

Underrepresented professionals will apply to participate in NCHA-facilitated events that offer inspiring educational opportunities, networking with industry leaders, and one-on-one coaching with a mentor who will serve as a professional ally in career development and advancement.
