“The Melting Pot” ABIM Foundation’s Building Trust Initiative

Congratulations to Emily Borlas (IT) and Debra Schneider (Library Services) in partnership with Alison Essary, on receiving the ABIM Foundation’s Building Trust Initiative. Alliance for Independent Academic Medical Centers (AIAMC) and HonorHealth: At HonorHealth, a multi-hospital system, a new “Melting Pot” initiative aims to build trust by fostering diversity, equity and inclusion to create a comfortable work environment in which all employees feel that they are included, seen, and heard.

A network of central and localized virtual learning communities, enhanced by a robust and replicable collection of educational resources, tools and speakers, supports candid communication and engagement. Why does this build trustworthiness? The initiative emphasizes the importance of listening and communication to build trust and enhance equity.
