ACHE Nevada Chapter DE&I Commitment Statement

ACHE – Nevada Chapter (ACHE-NV) stands committed to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DE&I) and making it integral to our mission. We are committed to ensuring that our chapter is a conduit in developing healthcare leaders that are representative of the communities from which they serve.  Ensuring diversity of our membership will serve as a catalyst for improved decision-making, increased productivity, and competitive advantage.

ACHE-NV 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. Creating equitable opportunities in health care leadership with executive sponsorship is an overarching goal of the Nevada chapter.

  • Leverage the DE&I committee for coaching and directing of DE&I strategy
  • Build and execute ACHE-NV chapter initiatives, strategies, and programming to include DE&I
  • Adopt National DE&I initiatives where applicable
  • Partner with local community groups that are representative of Nevada
