The Leverage Network’s purpose is twofold:
- To ‘ready’ members for board opportunities across all sectors of the healthcare industry; and
- To influence the board selection process and increase healthcare organizations’ board diversity
Membership demonstrates the importance of board diversity and supports the business case for improved organizational performance. Membership also supports the human case, that by ensuring board diversity that better represents customers, patients and populations served we can impact health disparities and inequities especially in communities and populations of color.
