The CEO Roundtable’s new report, Driving Health Equity in the Workplace, includes guiding principles and actionable strategies that can help organizations wherever they are on their health equity journey. The report is part of the AHA’s goal of promoting health equity – which means everyone having a just opportunity to be healthy – in all aspects of society.

Driving Health Equity was developed by a writing group made up of business leaders and experts in health equity. It’s based on scientific evidence, market research, best practices and examples from leading organizations.

Our aim is to help end historical structures and workplace cultures that advertently or inadvertently treat people inequitably based on race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, age, ability, veteran status or other factors.

Working toward health equity is the right thing to do for all organizations. Research shows that promoting health equity can benefit employee health and productivity, and reduce health care costs. The health of the entire nation will improve if employers commit to actions that eliminate inequities – benefitting employees, their families and their communities.

We hope employers everywhere will join us in our efforts to build health equity.
