OVERVIEW AND BENEFITS
What is the role of the chief diversity officer (CDO)—and how might other executives in leadership benefit from more knowledge of this role? A meeting of diversity experts in academic medicine in January 2012 produced insights to help organizations better understand the methods for creating effective CDO roles for their healthcare organizations. This report sheds light on what a CDO should require and helps hospital and medical institution leadership better understand the challenges that necessitate having a CDO. Key findings from this report include:
- The CDO portfolio must be clearly defined, matched to experience, and effectively aligned with relevant offices and initiatives.
- For an effective leader, the CDO requires appropriate positioning, resources, and staff to influence the impact of the organization.
- The skills, background, and demonstrated competencies of the potential CDO must be commensurate with an executive-level change.
