diversity impact event
The Diversity and Inclusion Office at Frontier Nursing University (FNU) is hosting its 10th annual Diversity Impact Conference, June 12-13, 2020, as a Virtual event. The year will mark a decade of bringing together national thought-leaders and speakers to engage with the FNU community on important topics facing the nursing and midwifery workforce.
The event opens the door for nurse practitioner and nurse-midwifery students to join FNU faculty and staff in collaborative discussions, address health disparities, and find proactive solutions to improve minority health among underrepresented and marginalized groups.
The theme of this year’s conference is “Year of the Nurse and the Midwife 2020: Increasing Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion,” going hand-in-hand with the World Health Organization’s designation of 2020 as the Year of the Nurse and the Midwife. The Year of the Nurse and the Midwife was established to celebrate the work of nurses and midwives, highlight the challenging conditions they often face and advocate for increased investments in the nursing and midwifery workforce.
The annual Diversity Impact Conference is open to FNU students, alumni, faculty, and staff who want to become part of FNU's legacy of providing care to rural and underserved communities. Those that participate will engage in cross-cultural activities and intercultural workshops, along with nurse-leadership strategies on how to effectively care for diverse populations within their communities.
This year’s two-day Virtual conference is expected to unite more than 100 FNU students, alumni, faculty, staff and community leaders, and will include:
Sessions hosted by nationally recognized nursing leaders
Cross-cultural activities and intercultural workshops
Team-building exercises, cultural competency awareness training, and open dialogues
Networking with FNU students, alumni, faculty, and staff to strengthen collaborative discussions
Nurse-leadership strategies and much more!
