AONL Prism Award Winners Detail Diversity and Inclusion Initiatives



Anne Arundel Medical Center (AAMC), Annapolis, Md., received this year’s AONL Prism Award, which recognizes organizations for advancing diversity and inclusion efforts in the nursing profession and community. AAMC made diversity a core organizational value in 2009 and instituted strategic initiatives and recruiting efforts designed to create a welcoming and inclusive environment for both a diverse community of health care providers and the diverse population they serve. The nursing department initiated AAMC’s work on diversity and inclusion and continues to play a leadership role in the system-wide effort. (Nurse Leader article, 9/3/20)
