Our association, the Healthcare Business Management Association (HBMA), did not have a history of providing diversity, equity, and inclusion education during our events. Our education committee felt strongly about including this topic on the agenda for our first virtual conference and sought out a speaker who could meet our members where they were, many without formal education on the topic. Glen provided a fantastic base of knowledge and definition of terminology that will allow us to continue these discussions with a common language moving forward. One attendee noted that they thoroughly enjoyed the definition of terms because “you hear them but don’t always think about what they mean by really separating them instead of simply lumping it all together.” The session has provided the strong foundation that our members need to start moving forward with DEI initiatives both in their own businesses and within our association as a whole.
