MASS GENERAL BRIGHAM SHARES THEIR DIVERSITY, EQUITY, AND INCLUSION JOURNEY AND STRATEGIES WITH SOUTH SHORE LEADERS
Leadership South Shore, a program of South Shore Bank and South Shore Chamber of Commerce, hosted its third Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Day on March 15, 2023. We were fortunate to have Mass General Brigham partner with us on this special day. It was a full day focusing on creating an inclusive work environment through DEI initiatives and education. The morning began with Ciara Gogan, Senior Manager; of Diversity, Equity, Inclusion & Belonging for CarGurus AND Leadership South Shore Steering Committee, introducing the DEI&B (Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging) concept and movement.
Next, Jarrod Chin & Taylor Goyette-Frechette from Mass General Brigham led a multi-hour training, including conversations and exercises around cultural humility, workforce DEI implications, personal filters, and tools to implement in our businesses and life. Their section concluded with Carla Carten, Interim Senior VP and Chief DEI Officer at Mass General Brigham, sharing the health system “Journey to United Against Racism” initiative.
Next was a moving panel discussion facilitated by Ciara Gogan
