Mental Health Workforce Diversity Leadership Series

Session 3: Hope, Justice, and Equity as Workplace Expectations


Achieving and maintaining workforce diversity is challenging for many mental health organizations. Frequently, organizations hire additional staff to “fix” the issue. This quick-fix approach rarely works. One of the biggest reasons is that organizational leaders do not take the time to fully understand why their organization lacks diversity in the first place. Similarly, little emphasis is placed on equity, inclusion, and belonging, which are key to increasing and sustaining diversity.


To address this issue, mental health leaders must ask critical questions such as: What is the history of my organization? How is my organization fostering a culture that not only speaks of diversity’s importance, but also demonstrates it through its values, practices, and policies? What supports can diverse employees anticipate in addition to their paycheck and fringe benefits?


This interactive, four-session mental health workforce diversity leadership series is designed for CEOs, COOs, executive directors, human resource managers, and other hiring professionals working in behavioral health organizations who seek to achieve and sustain diverse workforces. This learning experience will require continuous self-reflection, authentic and uncomfortable conversations, and the development of an action plan.



This series is offered to mental health professionals in the Pacific Southwest (Arizona, California, Hawaii, Nevada, and U.S. Pacific Islands of American Samoa, Guam, Marshall Islands, Northern Mariana Islands, Federated States of Micronesia, and Palau). We are also opening this series to other providers outside of our region.
