OPENING PANEL

Elevating Nursing Leadership to Advance Health Equity

(3:05-4:05pm ET)

Nursing leadership comes in many forms, each with its own context, opportunities, challenges, and successes. During this session, nursing leaders will share their unique experiences and perspectives on how nursing leaders at all stages of career can be more deliberate and impactful in their mission to advance health equity. This includes an authentic conversation about the importance of effective mentorship and sponsorship, and the realities of addressing discrimination such as racism and other “isms,” and how the profession can work to become more diverse and inclusive to promote health equity.

DIALOGUE 1

Health Equity in Action

A commitment to serving others lies at the core of the nursing profession. Achieving health equity for populations and communities with unique needs and considerations cannot be done in absence of dedication, sincerity, advocacy, mentorship, and leadership. Hear from three nursing leaders whose expertise and lived experiences offer perspectives, key strategies, and defining moments on how the profession can work to advance health equity through intentional and tangible action.

DIALOGUE 2

Global Perspectives on Health Equity 

(5:25-6:25pm ET)

Health equity, though a common goal, looks differently across the globe. In this session, nursing leaders from three different countries will share how where they serve shapes the environments they navigate in advancing health equity. Despite differences in geographies, cultures, and health delivery systems and infrastructures, professional assets such as mentorship, influence and trust, deliberate leadership, and impactful collaboration are critical to this endeavor. No matter where Academy members are located, we are all united under the common vision of “Healthy Lives for All People.”
