ACEP To Host Diversity Summit


As President-Elect, Dr. Becky Parker has two visions for ACEP – establishing emergency medicine as the nucleus of a new acute care continuum and fostering diversity and inclusion within the specialty.

In her speech to the ACEP Council last October, Dr. Parker stated, “Studies clearly demonstrate that more diverse organizations are stronger and more successful. We will increase our wellness, longevity, and grow our desperately needed workforce. Inclusivity sends a clear message: we take care of our own.”

ACEP has hired Tracy Brown, a diversity consultant, to help facilitate a Diversity Summit, slated for Thursday, April 14 at the ACEP national office. Ms. Brown is an experienced consultant who has worked with organizations nationwide on diversity and inclusion strategy. ACEP is excited about engaging her as a partner in this process.

The primary objectives for the Summit include:

  • Provide environmental data that’s important to the specialty of emergency medicine
  • Create a safe space to share stories; create dialogue, new ideas, and awareness
  • Capture results and identify areas of focus that will influence a 2-3 year Diversity and Inclusion Strategic Plan for ACEP

“Emergency physicians have a unique perspective in leading the charge of diversity and inclusion. When I’m standing above a patient in their hour of need, the rest of world fades away. All presuppositions and notions vanish. Nothing else matters,” said Dr. Parker. “As physicians, we chose emergency medicine because we love taking take care of everyone. Now it’s time to take care of ourselves.”

Summit participants represent the following categories: age, gender, religion, race/color, and LGBT. These individuals represent the designated communities and also bring special knowledge, research, publication, and/or leadership in the topic and within emergency medicine.

Invited Participants include:

  • Steven H. Bowman, MD, FACEP
