2020 ASH Virtual Listening Sessions on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
In 2020 ASH held a series of structured listening sessions to learn from Society members about their experiences as well as opportunities in the hematology community related to diversity, equity, and inclusion. The sessions explored issues faced by those from backgrounds traditionally disadvantaged in medicine, with a specific focus on race and ethnicity, gender, ability, and sexual orientation. This was intended to be a global opportunity inclusive of all ASH members.
The sessions were designed to:
- Create space for ASH members to share their perspectives and experiences.
- Gather meaningful information to help identity next steps for ASH to address issues related to diversity, equity, and inclusion within the engaged communities.
The sessions were developed in partnership with and facilitated by an independent expert in diversity, equity, and inclusion.
