What policies, if any, exist in your healthcare organization/institution that helps cultivate the skills needed to advance the principles of diversity, equity, and inclusion?
I work for the DOD Department of Army and within the Army the diversity makeup of the personal is large.  Since Army personnel is made up of different races, ethnicities, religions, sexual orientations, and other identities that come together to complete the mission. The DOD takes several steps to root out the bias and promote an environment where people are treated with dignity and respect.
As a member of the Civilian Army force, we are held to the same training and standards that the military personnel are held to and sometimes a higher standard. We are trained annually on how to detect and respond appropriately to bias, recognizing and understanding the impact of our own biases and prejudices (consciously and unconsciously). All personnel must complete and pass the yearly training called SHARP (Sexual Harassment Assault Response Prevention). Plus, other annual training on discrimination, and prejudice set forth by the Hospital Commander.
If your organization does not have a Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) policy analyze the DEI policy of another healthcare organization and discuss what policies exist in the healthcare organization/institution that helps cultivate the skills needed to advance the principles of DEI.
Since I work for the Department of the Army and a Civilian Army member, I am required to follow all the Army’s rules, policies, and regulations.  The Department of the Army has several regulations pertaining to DEI. Army Regulation (AR) 690-12 … how to appreciate, leverage, and integrate principles of DEI (The Army People Strategy-Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Annex, 2020). Also including having a DEI offices with their mission is to develop and implement a plan to advance DEI throughout the Army to establish the Army as a global leader in DEI (Army Diversity Office (Ado), n.d.).
What steps would you take to develop policies you can recommend to your chief nursing officer or chief executive officer?
Every organization developing their own DEI policies will be different. I believe that the Department of the Army has a good handle on developing and maintaining DEI policies and regulations. However, that does not mean to not give input. As I train, and work with the Army I will be watching for DEI’s progress and improvements. If I believe that there is any improvement in DEI within my organization, I will propose any suggestions in writing and send them up the chain of command.
What role do you play in eliminating discrimination and horizontal and lateral violence in your workplace?
First thing is understanding, accepting, and enforcing a zero-tolerance policy. Which should include things like the implementation of a workplace violence program that will have strategies to assess, plan, and intervene to reduce workplace violence. I will use the existing administrative and environmental controls like visitor access, panic button, etc.  Finally, I will use the approved reporting system to report concerns about issues of workplace violence in the workplace.
