DIVERSITY, INCLUSIVITY, EQUITY
Sovereign Staffing Solutions offers consultancy services to guide your healthcare organization through transparent strategies on promoting diversity, inclusivity and equity at the Nurse Manager, Nurse Executive and C-Suite levels. Despite laws and reforms which have been put in place to reduce or eliminate discrimination in the workplace, diversity, inclusion and equity continue to be an issue at the core in small and large organizations. Many organizations have gained momentum by hiring a “Chief Diversity Officer” or Director of Inclusion and Diversity, but have not offered the budgets, tools, or support budgets necessary for success in these roles.
The awakening of the recent racial tension in our country has proven that the reality is that much work and accountability needs to be done to achieve authentic diversity, inclusivity and equity. Achieving this goal requires much more than lip service or a newly written HR policy.
According to a report from The National League for Nursing (NLN) Black or African American nurses are mostly limited to direct patient care staff positions. A 2016 survey of 6000 hospitals by the Institute for Diversity in Health Management revealed that minorities made up 14% of hospital board members, 11% of hospital executive leaders, and 19% of first and mid‐level managers.
Sovereign Staffing Solutions will lead your organization in developing and implementing strategies of authentic diversity, inclusivity and equity exercises that will create better experiences and outcomes for all stakeholders. We will work with you to examine your current issues or develop a DIE plan for your organization that will also result in optimal improvement for employee satisfaction, retention and growth.
