BSGAR's Diversity StatementBSGAR has a diverse membership, reflecting the society we inhabit. BSGAR actively seeks and celebrates diversity and promotes inclusion in all aspects of our work. We believe unique perspectives, experiences, and values add dimension to our research, teaching and clinical practice. Our patient population is diverse, and our society should be as well.

BSGAR makes a firm commitment to strive to provide a safe and supportive environment for all through training and education, respecting differences with awareness of implicit and explicit biases. We advance diversity and inclusion in recruitment and promotion and enforce respect for the dignity of all members of our community including women, members of minority groups and individuals with disabilities.

BSGAR affirms our pledge to: -
•    Promote, advance, and encourage diversity in the speakers and chairpersons we invite to our Annual Educational Conferences
•    Promote, advance, and encourage diversity within our Executive Committee
•    Add a Diversity and Inclusion Charter in our Constitution
•    Appoint a Diversity Champion who will develop and execute our Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion strategy

To that end, we will send regular surveys to our members
(1)    to help us understand and better appreciate the diversity and demographics of our members
(2)    to encourage all members to self-nominate / suggest speakers for future Educational Conferences to better serve their needs.
