Infor’s Diana Solash at CHIME diversity forum
The College of Healthcare Information Management Executives (CHIME) conference is a premier healthcare industry event, attracting leaders from both the public and private sector and from across the care continuum. The event focuses on technology that helps us work better today, as well as helps us plan our future in the digital age.
It’s also a lot about the people who innovate and lead in the tech world.
One important forum during this year’s conference is the Nov. 1 sunrise session on workplace diversity. Infor’s own Diana Solash, vice president, diversity and inclusion, joins panelists from Carl R. Darnell Army Medical Center, Children’s Mercy Hospital, Cerner, and the U.S Department of Health and Human Services to discuss creating an inclusive workforce.
CHIME recognizes that bringing together a diversity of people—from all races, cultures and beliefs—leads to a richer work experience for everyone. It also breaks down barriers to new thought and innovation. Solash and the group will discuss specific strategies on how to encourage and recruit diverse talent, and how organizations can not only support, but sustain, diversity programs. The group will all have a conversation about how to engage youth in various communities, and set the stage for hiring future workforces.
Cletis Earle, chair of the CHIME board and SVP and CIO of Information Technology at Kaleida Health, called the panelists, “an outstanding panel of leaders who share CHIME’s commitment to proactively support activities, programs and other efforts aimed at encouraging, developing and sustaining greater diversity in the healthcare/healthcare IT workplace.”
