Systems contribute to perpetuating systemic barriers and inequity. In response to social injustices, inequitable outcomes and experiences, many organizations and leaders are making bold commitments to address systemic racism and promote diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI). Advancing these commitments requires more than responding to a call to action, but also developing the efficacy on how and what is needed to change at a micro and macro level.

Leaders within health and social care systems, can seek to advance organizational, structural and system change. Through examination of executive leadership within healthcare organizations across Canada, gaps exist whereby the distribution is often not reflective of the communities and populations served. To disrupt this status quo, understanding the experiences of Black, Indigenous and People of Color (BIPOC) within systems and as professionals across their career trajectory as emerging, senior, and tenured leaders is needed.

Amplifying the voices and perspectives of BIPOC health professionals and policy leaders. The resources to be shared are intended to shed light on levers, enablers, and action to support leadership development and organizational change through an equity lens. Through the reflections of keynote speakers and panelists hear insights on how healthcare executive leadership can cultivate organizational culture, social capital, development, and leadership pipelines that are meaningful in advancing and sustaining change.

Navigating the rapidly changing world of healthcare. 

With the crisis of the COVID-19 pandemic every health system around the world has had to reexamine their clinical, operational, financial and workforce capacity and resilience. Those health systems that had prioritized some of their enterprise digital investments prior to the pandemic were able to cope better and rebound faster. However, many organizations are now emerging from the last wave, recognizing the need to finally address manual or inefficient workflows in order to reduce administrative burden on clinicians and staff, while harnessing enterprise data to provide insights and operational feedback that can bring joy, meaning and purpose back into an exhausted workforce.

As organizations pursue digital health initiatives and reimagine healthcare operations, a demand for new capabilities is emerging – workforce shaping. Workforce shaping is not just about simplifying tasks or reducing overtime but reexamining the job responsibilities and tasks at every level in the organization to consider new roles and skill mix that optimize the capacity of the organization. By improving data access across the organization, every level of decision-maker can act swiftly and with confidence to drive operational excellence, managing costs and ensuring quality of care.
