Thanks to the generous sponsorship by Bristol Myers Squibb, this event is complimentary for the first 175 registrants

Back by popular demand, this year’s summit will bring together women of color and advocates to engage in real and healing conversations about experiences in the workplace, strategies for navigating inclusion and belonging in this New Era of Leadership, and renewed commitment to holistic wellbeing (the 4 F’s: Family, Finance, Faith-Mindfulness, and Future). 

While there is no charge to attend, you must add the Women of Color Summit to your registration. If you've already registered for the 2022 HBA Annual Conference and would like to add the Women of Color Wellness Summit to your registration, please contact us at HBA@HBAnet.org.  

Schedule (all times in ET)

1:00 – 1:30 PM
Networking and Wellness Fair

To get the day started, we will have opportunities to meet and greet while also perusing resource tables and exhibits from local vendors who will provide information pertaining to holistic well-being for women of color.   

1:30 – 2:00 PM
Welcome and Keynote

Our co-chairs, Trudy Bullard and Vinessa Pearson, and sponsors will provide greetings. Then, to ground the day’s conversation, a keynote speaker will focus our attention on “refueling” and holistic well-being. 

2:00 – 3:15 PM
The Purple Table

Prominent women of color in executive leadership positions will come together at the purple table to engage in hot topic conversations about their experiences in the workplace and their career journeys.   

3:15 – 3:30 PM

3:30 – 4:10 PM
Sister Circles

“She is a friend to my mind. She gathers me. The pieces I am, she gathers them and gives them back to me in all the right order. It’s good when you got a woman who is a friend of your mind.” – Toni Morrison 
As a follow-up to the Purple Table talk, women of color and allies will connect in smaller circles to continue conversations about opportunities and challenges women of color are facing in this New Era of Leadership and how they can make holistic well-being a priority so they are equipped to navigate what lies ahead. 

4:10 – 4:30 PM
Closing Inspiration

To conclude the summit and get us geared up for the rest of the 2022 HBA Annual Conference, we will feature a speaker who will provide an inspirational and affirming reminder that our diverse experiences and backgrounds uniquely equip us with qualities that are of value to businesses in the ecosystem of healthcare and the populations they serve. The speaker will also remind us to make holistic well-being a priority in our daily lives.
