Anchoring Health: Re-Cap of Healthcare Anchor Network Convening


The Healthcare Anchor Network (HAN) hosted their fall 2021 virtual convening this October 26th and 27th to discuss how the American Rescue Plan Act presents a historic opportunity to catalyze inclusive economic development and address racial inequities through equitable anchor strategies within our communities. One of the sessions highlighted programs, policies, and practices around hiring and developing inclusive local talent in collaboration with community partners as a means to achieve economic stability and good health in our communities, through an equitable culture and diverse workforce. The event also featured a panel of leadership, from a wide range of roles and backgrounds in healthcare, that just completed the pilot of HAN’s Racial and Economic Equity Awareness Leadership (REAL) series, to understand what it takes to lead strategies related to racial and economic equity within a healthcare system.
