Join us on June 8-9, 2023, for our 13th annual Diversity Impact conference! The Diversity Impact Conference brings together renowned thought leaders and speakers to increase awareness of the importance of diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) in the healthcare workforce, particularly for those working in underserved and rural communities.
This year’s conference will feature over 10 speakers and panelists from all over the U.S. and several engaging activities. This year’s conference theme is “Better Together: Advancing a Culture of Identity and Belonging in Healthcare.”
After this conference, you will be able to:
- Identify specific strategies to create a culture of belonging amongst peers and the larger community
- Discuss the causes behind healthcare disparities and their effect on creating a culture of belonging
- Reflect on ways to effectively engage in spaces to promote diversity in identity
- Practice ways to build collaborative communities
*Schedule subject to change.
A Letter From the President:
When Frontier Nursing University first held the Diversity Impact Conference over a decade ago, we chose the name carefully. “Diversity” and “conference” were obvious choices, but the word that truly describes what this conference is all about is “impact.” Diversity is more than a concept or a pie chart. Whether in an organization, a neighborhood, a business, or a school, diversity has impact. That impact comes in many forms. In Frontier’s particular area of preparing advanced practice nurses and nurse-midwives, the impact of a diverse student body, diverse faculty, and diverse staff results in diverse graduates who are equipped to answer the call to serve in the communities in which they live all over the country.
A Letter From the Conference Planner:
On behalf of Frontier Nursing University’s Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI), I welcome you to FNU’s 13th annual Diversity Impact Conference. We are excited to expand this event outside the borders of FNU for the first time as a virtual event, allowing everyone to participate safely.
Although we are apart physically, this conference continues to bring people together, and we look forward to this year being the same. We look forward to learning from our nationally recognized insightful speakers as they share their experiences, ideas, and blend of unique perspectives throughout the conference.
