This year, our ACHE Regent-at-Large, Carle-Marie Memnon, worked with our chapter to strengthen our commitment to diversity and inclusion, both in the chapter and in healthcare management. On September 29th, 2014, Healthcare Leaders of New York (HLNY) received the Regent-at-Large Award for Chapter Accomplishments in Diversity.
ACHE is strongly committed to diversity and inclusion, both within ACHE and in the healthcare industry at large. As such, the Regents-at-Large positions were added to the ACHE governance structure. The purpose of the Regents-at-Large is to promote diversity in the governance of ACHE with respect to race, ethnicity, gender, religion, age, sexual orientation, or disability.
In this role, the Regent-at- Large promotes the vision, mission and values of ACHE by fostering the diversity of ACHE’s leadership through programs developed to assist Regents (both Geographic and Federal Sector) increase the diversity of chapter and ACHE leadership and volunteer corps, and by being a visible and diverse voice in the ACHE governance structure.
