Topic: Diversity, Equity, and Community Engagement in Healthcare

Over the years, various corporations have recognized the positive impacts of diversity, equity, and inclusion principles in their organizational culture and on the community they serve. Healthcare institutions started incorporating these principles in their delivery of care. As healthcare designers, it is imperative to understand their vision and provide design solutions to achieve positive outcomes that advance care. At this conference, renowned healthcare institutions' thought leaders of diversity, equity, inclusion, and community engagement will share insights on the topic with real-life experiences. It will enable the design community to collaborate with institutions to provide unique design opportunities for future healthcare planning efforts.
