Research presented in this paper focuses on the challenges and barriers minorities face in route to the executive c-suite in healthcare institutions. Those minorities who overcome certain challenges and barriers face additional endeavors while occupying an executive seat. This conclusion is supported by an analysis of supporting documentation. A variety of literature was gathered and analyzed to capture the all perspectives on this issue. The literature used within this document contains a cross-sectional study by a reputable professional healthcare association, articles on executive management, journals that discuss the psychological impact of group identification, and articles containing best practices. Fortunately, there are a few associations that have concentrated on the underrepresented population of individuals occupying senior leadership roles in healthcare. In a time when society at large is in tune with diversity sensitivity, it is now time that our healthcare institutions and leaders self-assess their impact on potential future leaders. Recommendations for the industry are included and explored.
