The Future of Diversity, Inclusion & Equity in Medicine and Technology
November 10 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm EST
This workshop brings together best-in-class physicians, diversity and equity professionals, technologists, entrepreneurs, healthcare executives, investors, researchers, and healthcare professionals from the Bay Area and across the U.S. to discuss the interesting intersection of equity, healthcare, and technology. The emphasis will be on compelling, cross-functional, and inter-disciplinary themes. The workshop will focus on the opportunities, challenges, and best practices of leveraging technology to make modern healthcare more equitable for all patients. Additionally, we will discuss the business case for how diversity, inclusion, and equity –in addition to being beneficial for humanity and society– are catalytic for decreasing costs, increasing revenues, and ultimately driving higher profits at the organizational level. The event will punctuate the critical importance of diversity, inclusion, and engagement for modern organizations. This workshop is a collaborative, engaging, highly interactive exchange of ideas and information, with the hope and expectation that multiple subsequent collaborations between participants will emerge in the wake of the event.
