The disruption in how healthcare is delivered coupled with shifting demographics in the United States is making the business case for diversity. As the population continues to diversify Healthcare organizations will need to determine ways to diversify their Boards to gain long term sustainability in a disruptive environment.
Through our various programs, we prepare, position, and promote a robust pipeline of talented African American/Black executives.

I was very intentional in my decision to apply for Cohort III of the Healthcare Board Initiative (HcBI) sponsored by TLN as I wanted to expand my leadership reach and influence change in our communities through Board service. HcBI equipped me with a range of new knowledge and skills through the teachings of featured speakers from EY, Hedrick & Struggles; a host of African-American executive leaders who currently serve on prominent corporate and not-for-profit Boards; and from colleagues with unique gifts from across the country. Despite our virtual (versus in-person) sessions, we were able to connect and share with speakers who were remarkably authentic, transparent and offered pragmatic counsel for those of us seeking Board opportunities.
The HcBI Cohort II program is a curriculum designed for seasoned executives that meets us where we are. The content targets strategies that leverage our leadership competencies to optimally prepare us for governance opportunities and is not rehashing information we already know.
From the start, the HcBI Cohort II program has exposed me to African-American senior executives, board members, entrepreneurs, and advisors in the healthcare space. TLN has brought together a diverse group of accomplished African-American executives for this cohort, forming a powerful learning group which will hone my skills, enhance my readiness and position me for a board appointment.
