Kenya V. Beard EdD, AGACNP-BC, CNE, ANEF, FAAN
Kenya is the Associate Provost for Social Mission and Academic Excellence at Chamberlain University. As a 2012 Macy Faculty Scholar, she propagated research and best practices to advance the needle on diversity, inclusion, and health equity. In her former role as Senior Fellow at the Center for Health Policy and Media Engagement at George Washington University School of Nursing, she wrote blogs and co-produced health care disparity segments for the Center’s radio program, HealthCetera, on WBAI-FM for an audience of over 400,000 listeners. Numerous schools across the country have consulted with Dr. Beard on ways to strengthen the capacity of educators to create culturally responsive learning environments that speak to and mitigate the ways in which implicit bias impacts student and patient outcomes. Her publications, like the recently co-authored paper Looking Backwards to Move Forward: Using a Social Mission Lens in Nursing Education, amplify the importance of graduating a diverse, well-prepared workforce that can eliminate health care disparities.
