Diversity and Inclusion 

The need for increased Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion in the workplace has been highlighted in the past few years. NHMA has always advocated for more Hispanic and Latino representation within medicine and executive teams making decisions that affect the health of minority populations. By investing in your organization and becoming an organizational member at NHMA, you can put your open positions in our newsletters (1,4296 subscribers)- getting these opportunities in front of diverse candidates. Not only will increasing diversity benefit the Hispanic and Latino community, DEI has been shown to increase profits and overall satisfaction for employees. 

 “Organizations should prioritize an inclusive workforce — which, as this World Economic Forum report notes, goes beyond gender, race and ethnicity, and covers factors like education, socioeconomic backgrounds and sexual orientation. Those that do tend to enjoy lower turnover and a more satisfying work culture; the potential benefits of having an inclusive business aren't limited to a healthy ethic concerning equal employment.” - ADP

In 2015, McKinsey published an influential study entitled “Why diversity matters,” the findings of which show a strong correlation between diversity and financial performance. Data from this study showed that companies with greater ethnic and racial diversity among staff performed 35% better than companies whose staff demographics matched the national average. Furthermore, companies with greater gender diversity performed 15% better than companies with less gender diversity.” - Forbes

Diverse Companies Enjoy 2.3 Times Higher Cash Flow Per Employee: One study found that over a three-year period, companies with a diverse set of employees notice a significant increase in cash flow, not just overall, but among individual contributors at the company. Diverse Management Boosts Revenue By 19%: Another study looked at companies with diverse management teams and found that, on average, they enjoyed a 19% increase in revenue compared to their less diverse counterparts. Forty-Three Percent (43%) Of Companies With Diverse Boards Noticed Higher Profits: Not only is it beneficial to have diverse employees and management, but companies with diverse boards also noticed significantly higher profits. Companies With Highly Gender-diverse Executive Teams Perform Significantly Better  Executive teams that are highly gender-diverse are found to be 21% more likely to outperform on profitability.”- Built In
