The APC Leadership Development & Diversity (LD&D) Committee recently developed the concept of a Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) Faculty Leaders Network in academic pathology. AAMC data suggests pathology is one of the most diverse specialties in medicine. APC recognizes that a diverse workforce and an inclusive, respectful work environment serve to promote the missions of excellence in patient care and academic pathology. LD&D Committee members believe there is an opportunity to support the departmental leaders in DEI by organizing them into a group that can share and generate information, best practices, and educational resources. 

The new APC DEI Faculty Leaders Network, which reports to APC’s LD&D Committee, has been approved by APC Council and is ready to begin recruiting participants for a first meeting to be held in late February or early March. Please note that only Chair members can appoint appropriate faculty member(s) to this group. For more information and to add your departmental DEI Faculty Leader to the Network, please go to www.apcprods.org/DEI-Leaders-Network or http://www.surveymonkey.com/r/APCDEIFacultyLeadersNetwork.
