NEBGH’s Recent “Don’t Miss!” Programs on Diversity, Inclusion and Health Equity - Tune in Now!

Highlighting the importance of diversity, inclusion and health equity in the workplace has been an important focus for NEBGH. Tune into our recent programs below:
Black History, Health Disparities and "The Fierce Urgency of Now"
On Feb. 25th, Dr. Karinn Glover and Dr. Wayne Rawlins, moderated by our own CEO, Candice Sherman, had an important Black History Month conversation about the history of health disparities and the role employers can play in creating an anti-racist approach to physical and mental health.
Battling Racial Health Disparities in Employer-Sponsored Healthcare
No employer seeks to create disparities i the health benefits and healthcare services provided to Black Indigenous People of Color (BIPOC) populations. Nonetheless, health outcomes are worse for these employees - the result of bias and racism embedded in our systems. How can employers become allies in the move toward health equity?
Moving Beyond Diversity to Inclusion
Pursuing and celebrating diversity in your workplace is a worthy goal. But it's not enough. Organizations must change themselves to fit all people and create a culture of inclusion and belonging.

How Racism Affects Employee Mental Health
In early August, Dr. Karinn Glover joined us to discuss how COVID-19 has hit BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, People of Color) communities especially hard. The murders of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery and Breonna Taylor have thrown into stark relief the systemic racism that exists in all corners of society. Individuals of color have suffered from the trauma and daily indignities of racism every day of their lives – including at work.
