Diversity leadership in healthcare: a question of care, quality and safety Healthcare in the 21st century is charged with delivering high quality care within an increasingly diverse society in the face of resource constraints both human and financial. Often this occurs within our own country contexts with our everyday concerns related to our local areas of practice. However, every now and then, something happens which forces us to readjust our focus and appreciate the shared, global nature of our professions – Covid19 pandemic which has swept the world in the last year has forced us to do that. It has reminded us once again of the importance of high-quality, compassionate care and shared decision making in securing health and life chances for all people. At the same time, it has revealed some of the inequalities and challenges faced by some of our communities, forcing us to review how well we are providing ‘an equal’ chance of life and health to all – This talk looks at what we have learned and the need more than ever, to appreciate the science and Art of leadership in healthcare for the future success of our professions, our people and ourselves.
