Diversity, Equity and Inclusion


Coalition Equity & Inclusion Workgroup

The Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Workgroup formed in Spring 2021 with a guiding vision, clarity of mission, and demonstrative goals that will underpin our work moving forward.

Our Mission: The Equity and Inclusion workgroup of the coalition will work to forge ongoing collaborations, build capacity, align resources, avoid duplication, improve transparency/accountability, and overcome barriers to equitable and inclusive care. We are working together to have an impact.

Addressing diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) issues within our field is a top priority for the Coalition team, members, and stakeholders. Coalition Board and membership conversations as well as our current strategic planning process have further stressed the need to revise our Vision, Mission, Principles & Values and Strategic Priorities through a DEI lens.

Our workgroup will specifically discuss questions, comments, and concerns re: DEI efforts within the hospice and palliative care field and share best practices among the Coalition member organizations. More details are provided in our issues of the Coalition Edition.

DEI Resources 

Below is a list of resources selected by Coalition Members to help us and those in our field learn and self-reflect on issues surrounding health and racial equity. This list is an ongoing effort by the Coalition to provide a hub for tools and resources to help our field learn, challenge ourselves, and have the hard conversations with our peers groups, our colleagues and within our institutions.
