Barbra Banks

Diversity & Inclusion Consultant

Company: HealthPartners
Role: Session Presenter

Since 2014, Barbra Banks has been a Diversity & Inclusion consultant at HealthPartners, partnering with leaders to influence and support efforts that foster an environment where everyone is welcomed, included and valued.

Barb’s 20 years of experience spans a variety of sectors and industries, including Cargill, Best Buy, SuperValu, Habitat for Humanity International, and the YWCA of Minneapolis.

She earned her PhD in organizational leadership, policy, and development at the University of Minnesota, with a research focus on how healthcare organizations address institutional racism as a part of their health equity efforts.

When she’s not working to dismantle systemic racism, Barb spends time with her aging parents, plays soccer as much as possible before her body fails her, and happily lets her three rescue dogs run her life.
