About this webinar

As equity leaders plan and prioritize their work, they are often faced with making critical decisions about how and what to prioritize.

Leaders at Hennepin Healthcare took a different approach by embracing all of their opportunities to address equity. Dr. Nneka Sederstrom, Chief Health Equity Officer and Dr. Talee Vang, Vice President of Health Equity will share their approach that began with a brainstorming session to catalogue the many targets for equity work and resulted in the expansion of the equity team by more than 25 positions.

Join us to learn how Hennepin Healthcare leaders:

  • Documented the need for greater resources to address equity
  • Structured their expansive new team to approach targeted inequities
  • Tracking the impact their equity work is having on the patients they serve.
