Webinar Details & Objectives

Institutional Climate and Culture is critical to the experience of faculty, staff, and students within nursing schools. Fostering environments where diverse backgrounds are valued and respected is an imperative for achieving the mission-driven goals and commitments. Diverse, equitable, inclusive, and accessible environments where there is a collective sense of belonging and all individuals thrive and do their best work are critical to achieving the nursing school’s commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion.

This webinar will discuss how the dimensions of the Inclusive Excellence Ecosystem for Academic Nursing align and assist nursing schools with organizing and guiding diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) efforts.

This webinar is the third installment for the Inclusive Excellence Webinar Series. For more information, on additional webinars in this series, visit www.aacnnursing.org/diversity/webinars.
