Speaking of Books: Diversity on the Executive Path
This event is powered by the Research Commons featuring Diane L Dixon, EdD, lecturer in the School of Public Health, with introductions by Nedelina Tchangalova, STEM Librarian for the University Libraries.
The population that healthcare organizations serve is becoming increasingly diverse. However, racially and ethnically diverse executive leaders in healthcare remain underrepresented.
In Diversity on the Executive Path: Wisdom and Insights for Navigating to the Highest Levels of Healthcare Leadership, author Diane L. Dixon, EdD, shares the real-life experiences of 12 racially and ethnically diverse hospital and health system CEOs.
She conducted in-depth, face-to-face interviews to discover what it takes to become a leader at the highest level. Each chapter includes practical advice from the executives interviewed and additional healthcare leaders for navigating the executive path.
