The American Institute for Medical & Biological Engineering recently hosted a virtual summit under the banner Anti-Racism: A Roadmap to Policy Transformation in BME to catalyze institutional changes directed to biomedical engineering departments and their respective institutions to actively lead the way on anti-racism.
The virtual meeting featured panel discussions among university faculty and administrators representing a broad spectrum of the scientific and engineering fields, as well as the National Institutes of Health, the National Science Foundation and other institutions.
The goal of the summit was to provide a set of detailed action items that would foster an optimal climate for equity and inclusion on campus. Themes addressed in the two-day event held on January 28-29 included culture and climate, institutional policy, equity and inclusion, and public accountability.
The CCM Team supported this pivotal event by assisting with development of a post-summit white paper.
