Featured on the Nightingale Podcast

Dr. DeWitty discusses transformational leadership and why this is an important pillar of success in health care today. Transformational Leadership has taken on a new meaning, post-Covid, as we continue to face many new challenges requiring  more adaptive behaviors; we must  transform if we expect to survive. Transformative leaders must be out front and influence others to make the necessary changes to achieve goals and make an impact.

A Mentoring Initiative for Students at Historically Black Colleges and Universities: One Strategy to Increase Nursing Workforce Diversity and Advance Health Equity

This article addresses low retention and graduation rates among historically marginalized students in nursing programs at Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs). Attrition increases economic costs and reduces the lifetime earnings of students who may have become nurses; nursing schools must identify effective support strategies and interventions to reduce attrition and encourage persistence. Mentoring is a proven success strategy to support historically marginalized students, helping them navigate challenges, improving academic outcomes, and increasing the diversity of the nursing workforce. Mentors have connections with others who may help the student and who can open doors to establishing new relationships and opportunities, including internships, externships, and employment options.

The Story Behind Our Name

Pourquois Diversity Consulting Logo

"Pourquoi" is a French word meaning "why." Pourquoi stories explain why things in the natural world came to be the way it is today.

“How did the moon get in the sky?”

“How did the ocean come to be?”

“Why are roses red and violets blue?"

or "Why are we all different?”

Why Diversity? In order to unlock all of the positive benefits of a diverse workforce, organizations NEED to be intentional about creating an inclusive culture.
