DIVERSITY AND EQUITY COMMITTEE
The Diversity and Equity (DEC) Committee
The Diversity and Equity Committee of the Asia Pacific Society of Nephrology (APSN) is committed to promoting, enabling and supporting diversity, equity and inclusiveness for all its members.
We recognise the compelling evidence that organisations composed of members with differing skills, experience and perspectives experience broad benefits at both the organisational and member levels. We recognise diversity as all the differences between people that make them who they are, including differences in age, ability, career stage, gender, sexual orientation, culture, religion and socioeconomic background.
The Diversity and Equity (DEC) Committee of the APSN is accountable for:
- Collate data on existing diversity and equity within the APSN, and formally monitor and annually report on diversity and equity data to the APSN membership.
- Establish targets for diversity in APSN leadership positions, on committees and at educational events (speakers and chair positions), and actively seek diverse and inclusive representation in these roles.
- Consider and report on barriers to diverse and equitable representation.
- Develop policies and action plans to address existing barriers and encourage and support individuals from unrepresented groups to participate more fully in the APSN.
