2017 Healthcare Summit



Sponsored By:

The 2nd Annual Inclusive Leadership & Diversity Healthcare Summit sponsored by Carolinas HealthCare System and Novant Health was held on November 7, 2017.

This summit aims to bring together thought leaders and professionals from healthcare, corporate, higher education, government, military, nonprofit and small business sectors. Leaders discuss the latest trends, research and leading practices in inclusive leadership and diversity; and current business issues impacting healthcare.


More than ever before, leaders are navigating a rapidly shifting environment where news travels fast and policy changes impact our workforce and communities on a daily basis, leaving little time for thoughtful reflection.  The event’s agenda has been designed to engage the attendees in rich and meaningful dialogue and learning opportunities that will support our work in keeping pace with the transformation of the healthcare industry.


True to our values, this healthcare summit is a collaborative of Carolinas HealthCare System and Novant Health.  Diversity MBA Magazine give thanks to supporting sponsors, planning committee, staff and partners for their leadership and continued support. We also thank the Institute for Diversity, AHA for being our Title sponsor.


This event is a safe environment, where people are able to have bold conversations, be authentic and learn from each other.

Attendees walked away with at least one new idea and made new connections that supported their efforts.
