Join Senior HR Leaders at our 5th Annual BigHR Diversity & Inclusion Event

Creating highly engaging safe space conversation during racially tense times with Chief Diversity Officer at Sentara Healthcare, Dana Beckton

Uncategorized Jul 30, 2020

Today we share the career journey of Dana Beckton, Chief Diversity Officer of Sentara Healthcare and how she went from city bus driver to a Chief Diversity Officer of one of the largest healthcare networks in the country.

Whether you're just starting this journey or need a reset in DIEB, you'll want to hear her story and recommendations.

She shared with us the three legged stool in diversity, inclusion, equity and belonging and how to build authentic relationships of trust to drive change without having all the answers.

Finally, you'll hear how she created safe space conversation sessions that had over 90% engagement at leadership & executive levels and two books you will find very helpful in this journey.

If you don't have time to watch the vlog post, here is the machine generated transcript.

Enjoy! Cindy Lu
