Mount Sinai Launches Mentoring Program “Black Women Leaders Connect”

First-of-its-kind group will bring transformational change and empower – Black leaders International Women’s Day marks the inauguration of the group and kicks off a month of events for executive leaders

Recognizing the importance of role models in increasing diversity and inclusion at the executive level in health care, Black women who are executive- and senior-level administrative and clinical leaders at the Mount Sinai Health System have joined together to create a mentoring program called “Black Women Leaders Connect.” This first-of-its-kind initiative is focused on increasing the recruitment and elevation of Black women to executive roles in health care and to nurturing and guiding the next generation of leaders within Mount Sinai and in the community.

Launched by Mount Sinai’s Office for Diversity and Inclusion, the group will create a space in which Black women connect to support one another, become role models and mentors throughout the organization, and drive change in the executive space. The group will seek innovative ways to promote belonging, collaboration, and networking; develop recommendations that support the organization’s goals for strategic diversity, equity, and inclusion; and create a model for growing Black leaders within the organization.
