Our Commitment to Inclusion, Diversity, Equity, and Antiracism

As part of our commitment to dismantling racism and ending the cultural and structural conditions that enable racism in academic public health institutions, we released the Association’s Statement of Commitment to Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Social Justice as well as our Framework, Dismantling Racism and Structural Racism in Academic Public Health.  We acknowledge that achieving this long-sought goal is part of a vital continuum to tackle a long history of legally sanctioned racist and discriminatory practices and a myriad of societal injustices, and that our efforts cannot end with these statements. We pledge to uphold and champion accountability and action by infusing diversity, equity, inclusion, and social justice into every aspect of our Association. We will continue this dedication by working internally and externally with our member institutions and partners around the globe to advance our deeply held tenets of public health: human rights, social justice, and health equity for everyone, everywhere.
