WIN is committed to structuring opportunities to advance health equity in the West and specifically to promoting health equity through WIN programming, developing nurse leaders from diverse populations, and increasing the number of monetary awards focusing on health disparities in the West.
In 2020, WIN created a Task Force on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion that was formalized into a standing WIN committee in 2021.
In October 2021, the committee distributed a demographic survey to WIN membership. The results of that survey are HERE.
