Belonging in Healthcare: The Better Allies® Approach to Creating More Inclusive Workplaces

It’s become increasingly clear that healthcare workplaces are filled with non-inclusive behavior. People who are underrepresented because of their gender, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation and identity, disabilities, and other factors regularly face biases and challenges that hold them back from success. These include everything from harassment, dismissive behavior, and lack of credit for their contributions, to pay inequity, extra hurdles to advancement, and more. And while many organizations are looking to address these issues with top-down initiatives, there’s also an important role for individuals to play in creating a more inclusive culture via everyday acts of allyship.

In this new book, inclusive workplace expert Karen Catlin brings her popular Better Allies® approach to healthcare workplaces.

Belonging in Healthcare provides a practical, research-based guide for how to be a better ally for coworkers who are from underrepresented groups. Filled with firsthand accounts from nurses, physicians, staff, administrators, and professors, combined with published studies, the book will help you spot situations where you can create a more inclusive workplace and everyday actions to take so everyone can thrive.

This is the book that allies in healthcare have been searching for: an industry-specific guide to the mindsets, strategies, and changes needed to make their workplaces more equitable from the inside out.
