Equity, Quality, and Inclusion - Mentorship, Dialogue, and Collaboration Work Group

Overall purpose & pragmatic goal: i) start to implement suggestions and solutions from other work groups with dissemination of work to larger membership. Assess and re-assess outcomes of implementation of suggestions for improvement from other work groups. ii) create a pathway to direct EAST members towards resources generated by this work group (equity-based mentorship support) and the others. Keep members apprised of interesting results of initiatives through social and traditional media and forms of communication.

The American Surgical Association and the Association of Women Surgeons have excellent resources related to Equity, Quality, and Inclusion and Mentoring. Click here for a summary.
