All Emergency Medicine Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Vision Statement
As a result of the critical group discussions that took place during the SAEM annual meeting in May, 2022, SAEM initiated an All Emergency Medicine Organizations Task Force on Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI). This task force, led by SAEM, includes representatives from AACEM, AAEM, AAEM/RSA, ABEM, ACEP, ACOEP, CORD, EMRA, and RAMS.
Thanks to each organization investing their time and energy into these vital DEI conversations, an All EM DEI Vision Statement was created and approved by the Board of Directors from each organization.
SAEM is very proud of this vision statement and of the commitment made by the EM community in making this pledge, and we look forward to the continued collaboration of the task force.
All EM DEI Vision Statement
Emergency Medicine is the safety net for society’s health needs. Therefore, we have a unique duty to advance health equity and dismantle systemic barriers to equality. All EM pledges, with a renewed sense of purpose, to champion equitable and compassionate emergency care and to fight for a society that condemns social inequity, racism, discrimination, systemic oppression of all kinds, and cherishes our rich diversity.
