The AMWA Board of Directors (BOD) issued a statement in June 2020 acknowledging that health and well-being for all cannot exist alongside endemic racial health inequities. The statement emphasized that diversity is a strength that enriches AMWA membership. In 2021, the BOD confirmed the goal of creating a more inclusive, diverse, and collaborative environment for members and set a direction for enhancing diversity and inclusion efforts within the organization. In addition to the updated AMWA diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) statement,1 the BOD appointed a Diversity and Inclusion (D&I) Assessment Task Force. The task force was charged with analyzing membership data and gathering member input to help determine the current status of the organization’s D&I; identify deficiencies, needs, opportunities, and challenges related to D&I; and recommend initial strategies to enhance D&I within the organization.
