The Executive Diversity Career Navigator www.edcnavigator.org
A new centralized online resource is now available to help healthcare leaders from underrepresented groups successfully navigate their career path to senior-level positions.
Developed through the collaborative effort of six national healthcare organizations dedicated to advancing executive diversity—the American College of Healthcare Executives, Asian Healthcare Leaders Forum, Institute for Diversity in Health Management , LGBT Forum, National Association for Latino Healthcare Executives, and National Association of Health Services Executives—the EDCN will help cultivate a diverse healthcare workforce. The developers of the EDCN believe a diverse workforce is best equipped to recognize and address disparities in care and access, effectively improving health for all.
Much of the EDCN’s career development content, including tools, tips and links, will be applicable to any healthcare professional seeking information; however, key aspects of the EDCN will be tailored to the needs and interests of diverse healthcare executives. A distinguishing feature of the EDCN will be inclusion of the “voice” of experienced healthcare leaders captured in multimedia formats, including text and video, along with other unique features.
Officially launched April 27, the EDCN is a dynamic online resource that is regularly updated with new information, such as perspectives from diverse healthcare executives, and enhanced to strengthen users’ experience on the EDCN website.
