February 3, 2023 /CSRwire/ - During its first-ever Solutions Convening hosted at the Lawrence J. Ellison Institute for Transformative Medicine, ALL IN: WellBeing First for Healthcare announces two advancements to catalyze cross-sector investment in solutions that improve healthcare workforce well-being:
ALL IN Fund Awardees
ALL IN continues its grant program with its latest round of awardees to build the capacity of healthcare organizations to implement systems-level change and a cultural shift that prioritizes their healthcare workforce’s well-being. The latest round of funding brings the ALL IN Fund’s total giving to over $1.3 million across 11 healthcare organizations that seek to address one or more of the actions within ALL IN’s Healthcare Workforce Rescue Package. The four newest grant recipients are:
“These four new ALL IN Fund recipients are each pioneering extraordinary initiatives at a local level to contribute to our greater mission where every health worker feels valued, protected and empowered to seek the care that they need,” said Corey Feist, co-founder of ALL IN: WellBeing First for Healthcare and president of the Dr. Lorna Breen Heroes' Foundation. “However, we were only able to provide funding to 4% of the eligible organizations that submitted applications to the ALL IN Fund—more investment is critical for us to realize a nation where every healthcare system has the resources, responsibility and resolve to improve its workforce’s well-being.”
ALL IN Funders Circle
To galvanize this investment needed, ALL IN is launching a Funders Circle to scale direct financial support to healthcare organizations seeking to advance solutions to improve healthcare workforce well-being. The Funders Circle mobilizes the innovation and power in solutions being created by those who are closest to the problems and supports ALL IN’s efforts to eliminate persistent mental health and well-being challenges that disadvantage health workers. The three founding members of the Funders Circle are:
“Since its creation, ALL IN has tackled many of the challenges harming the well-being of our healthcare workforce—but our work is far from done,” says Michelle A. Williams, co-founder of ALL IN: WellBeing First for Healthcare, co-founder of #FirstRespondersFirst and dean of the Harvard T. H. Chan School of Public Health. “As healthcare workers across the country continue to struggle with burnout and stigmas around mental health needs, we must continue to move quickly and deliberately to advance, amplify and fund solutions that provide them with the support they deserve. It is on us to redesign our healthcare system in a way that ensures our care providers have access to resources that lift them up and strengthen their well-being—because health workers cannot care for others if they cannot care for themselves.”
