The current focus on equity and inclusion across the country presents an opportunity for public sector health leaders to engage their staff to create agency cultures that value equity and inclusion, both internally and for the populations they serve. This Leadership Forward episode, the fourth in a series that explores the Consortium’s Framework for Public Sector Leadership, focuses on how the framework’s “Engaging and Motivating People” domain applies in practice. Womazetta Jones, MA, secretary of Rhode Island’s Executive Office of Health and Human Services, and Karen Kimsey, MSW, director of the Virginia Department of Medical Assistance Services, discuss leadership strategies they have implemented to infuse equity into their organizations and in their engagements with stakeholders.

The conversation is moderated by Gretchen Hammer, senior strategic advisor at the National Association of Medicaid Directors.
