The purpose of the Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) Steering Committee is to guide and execute strategic goals and objectives related to diversity, equity and inclusion through recommendations approved by the AMIA Board of Directors.

The DEI Steering Committee directs specific attention to AMIA’s mission and its intersection with systemic racism and health equity.  There are five DEI Subcommittees each led by two co-chairs: Recruitment; Retention and Advancement; Communications; Education, Governance, and Policy; and Advancement of Health Equity and Antiracism in Healthcare.

Diversity, equity and inclusion is a strategic umbrella encompassing multiple concerns including, but not limited to, race, ethnicity, nationality, gender, LGBTQIA+, and ability and initiatives and activities involving affinity groups, S.T.E.M.M. pathways into the field, program development, education content, leadership development, and mentoring. All are cross-organizational issues affecting AMIA’s individual and organizational membership through governance and staff work in membership, education, meetings, marketing communications, and public policy.
