ACHE Commitment to Diversity
The American College of Healthcare Executives has undertaken a number of
initiatives to further diversity within ACHE and the healthcare management field.
Underscoring ACHE's commitment to achieving diversity are:
Partners in Diversity
Institute for Diversity in Health Management, co-founded by
ACHE, works to expand leadership opportunities for minorities in
health administration. Programs include student internships,
education for professionals, a biannual conference and other
initiatives that support this goal.
Diversity and Cultural Proficiency Assessment Tool
for Leaders PDF)—created by ACHE, the American Hospital
Association, the Institute for Diversity in Health Management, and
the National Center for Healthcare Leadership—contains
assessment worksheets and case studies that healthcare leaders
may use to evaluate the diversity and cultural proficiency
of their organizations and identify what activities and practices
need to be implemented.
- ACHE's annual Congress on Healthcare Leadership is our
premier event for providing diversity education for healthcare
executives. At Congress, you and your peers have the unique
opportunity to discuss diversity with issue experts. In
addition, sessions are held that address how healthcare
executives can form effective diversity policies.
