WiEMS-AAEM Position Statement on Supporting Women Physicians of Color

We, the Council of the AAEM Women in Emergency Medicine Section, recognize and acknowledge the paucity of black and brown members within our section, within our specialty and within the house of medicine.  We admit that this underrepresentation in our membership contributes to failing to see their experience, elevate their voices and advocate for their success.  We pledge to leverage the benefits and influence of this new section to intentionally support, promote and sponsor our colleagues of color.  We will strive to practice more than active allyship, and represent antiracism through advocacy and creation of unencumbered pathways for mentorship and leadership.  We ask our full section to hold us accountable when we fall short.
