Your individuality empowers you, set a tone that confirms your purpose is the difference that makes a difference.

Fabian A. Stone, NAHSE National President, 2019-2021
testimonial_quoteDiversity generates innovation, it produces inclusion, and it fosters a culture of authenticity. It compels us to remain genuine, challenges us to get comfortable with being uncomfortable, promotes varying perspectives and ideas and allows everyone to have a voice. I encourage you to celebrate your differences and to inspire others to do the same. 
Rolando Gomez, NALHE President & Chair, 2019-2021

They felt that there was no example of that that existed … However, I had great mentors, great parents, people who were so supportive who were still encouraging me to pursue a health care career.” Excerpt from podcast by Dr. Kimberlydawn Wisdom, IFDHE Board Chairperson, 2020

Ajith Pai, PharmD, FACHE, AHLF Chair, 2020-2021

testimonial_quoteConsistent with the ACHE healthcare executive competency domain, ‘professionalism’, executives have a responsibility to contribute to the development of our professional community. Mentoring members of historically underrepresented and excluded groups is one of the ways we can create organizations where all people can fully realize their potential.
