Leadership in Managing and Retaining a Multicultural Workforce


Presented by Anthony Kurec, MS, MASCP, MLT(ASCP), H, DLM

Most of us have grown up reading, seeing, and maybe participating in issues related to diversity, equity, and inclusion, but may not have fully evolved to a level of understanding in how to implement some of key concepts of DEI into our work environment. Unintentional bias can easily creep into our management practices, thus it is important to recognize and correct our actions in order to maximize opportunities for staff development and satisfy their professional needs. This session will cover some of these concepts and how to implement them.

Learning Objectives
At the end of this session, the attendee will be able to:
  1. Describe key leadership principles
  2. Define Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI)
  3. Apply DEI to hiring, managing, and retaining staff
Instruction Level: Intermediate

ASCLS is approved as a provider of continuing education programs in the clinical laboratory sciences by the ASCLS P.A.C.E. ® Program.
