2023 Diversity & Inclusion Summit
Sponsored by Baker Botts

The Junior League of Dallas and Baker Botts L.L.P. invite you to our 2023 Diversity & Inclusion Summit: Disparities and Biases in Healthcare.

Health and healthcare disparities between groups are closely linked with issues of diversity, equity, and inclusion. Disparities occur across many dimensions, including race/ethnicity, socioeconomic status, age, location, gender, disability status, and sexual orientation. Differences in care affect not only the groups facing them, but also limit overall gains in quality of life and health for the broader population.

Join us for a fascinating look at leading causes of healthcare disparities, their connection to the JLD’s work in the community, and what we can all do to make a difference.

Members can register here. Please join our welcome reception at 5:45 p.m. The program will begin at 6:30 p.m. Members are welcome to invite a non-member guest to join. Please note any guests in the comment portion of the registration link.
