Abstract

A truly inclusive environment helps ensure a competitive advantage in health care. Everyone’s input optimizes team performance. Inclusion decreases burnout, and must be a priority, demanding a carefully designed strategy. Actively embracing and advancing inclusion has benefits for employees, patients as well as the business bottom line. Providing culturally appropriate care, in a welcoming environment, to all patients requires inclusiveness, with the participation of every diverse employee.
