Did you know the AMA has an Equity Inclusion and Diversity Committee (EIDC)? The EIDC provides the AMA with a forum for the identification and consideration of equity issues and is intended to develop policy and initiatives targeted towards enhancing equity and addressing any inequitable and discriminatory practices that may exist in the medical community. The EIDC met on 28 February and is currently working on strategies promote equity and diversity of representation within the AMA’s own governance structures. In 2018 it developed an Anti-Racism Statement which acknowledges that an ongoing and shared commitment across organisations, governments, and individuals is required to eliminate racism in health care.
