UHE Diversity and Inclusion Policy

Utah Healthcare Executives (UHE) embraces diversity within the healthcare management field and recognizes that priority as both an ethical and business imperative. UHE values diversity and initiatives that promote diversity because they can improve the quality of the organization’s workforce. UHE also values and actively promotes diversity in its leaders and members because diverse participation can serve as a catalyst for improved decision-making, increased productivity, and competitive advantage.

Further, UHE works to foster an inclusive environment that recognizes the contributions and supports the advancement of all, regardless of race, ethnicity, national origin, gender, religion, age, marital status, sexual orientation, gender identity, or disability because an inclusive environment can enhance the quality of healthcare, improve hospital/community relations, and positively affect the health status of society. This priority is reflected in the chapter’s various activities and initiatives.
