Justice, Equity, Diversity & Inclusion Focus

CAHL Calls its Membership to the JEDI Work

The Justice, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (JEDI) Committee recognizes the challenges that many communities face because of targeted attacks, and with the CAHL Board of Directors, acknowledges the impact this has on our membership and their families and organizations. The JEDI Committee would like to reiterate that as an association of healthcare leaders, we have an obligation to call attention to intolerable acts of violence, raise awareness, create and then hold safe spaces, and honor our members and their work through difficult times.
