The past year has seen many sectors of health care increasingly pursue diversity, equity, and inclusion efforts as health equity become a more prominent topic. In this episode of the Medicaid Leadership Exchange podcast, Ivory Banks, chief of staff at the Department of Medical Assistance Services, Commonwealth of Virginia, and Marlia Mattke, assistant administrator at the Wisconsin Department of Health Services, share their successes and challenges in pursuing diversity, equity, and inclusion efforts that better support staff of color in Medicaid agencies.
This episode is cohosted by Gretchen Hammer, senior strategic advisor, and Dianne Hasselman, deputy executive director at the National Association of Medicaid Directors (NAMD). It also includes insights from Mark Larson, former Vermont Medicaid director and senior vice president of leadership and capacity building at the Center for Health Care Strategies (CHCS).
