How can we address DEI when we don’t even know the makeup of our membership? I’d like some suggestions on what fields to add to our database and secondly, how can we get members to complete those fields?
Vivian Abalama, IOM, CAE

Both AUA and SOCCA have conducted membership surveys that led to our DEI work. I am willing to share the questions from survey if any societies are interested

I am pleased to see the diversity within this group. Without all of us having a seat at each table, we cannot change the culture and move the needle.

Great to hear from Dr. Jimenez about inclusion for IMGs. Are there efforts within ASA specifically directed to support inclusion for IMGs / FMGs?
Vilma Joseph
01:01:56
Yes, it would be great if you would send us the survey.

Dr. McDade, did you want to add a comment?

Jim Duong, thanks for your comments regarding Asian Americans. I admire your courage to tackle sensitive issues. Diversity is complex - one advantage is we self-identify! Clearly, racism towards Asian-Americans (in general) has seen a rise in 2020 - and it is an important issue to discuss. Much like Hispanics who might appear with a wide array of external appearance, the designation of "qualifying" for under-representation is less important than endorsing principles of equity, inclusion, and diversity of backgrounds, viewpoints, opinions, etc. Depending on the group, Asians might be "under"-represented or might not be. However, the unique perspective of that individual will always be welcomed, I am glad you are part of the group.

Agree with last comment, disparities research has not received the attention that needs, I am glad the ASA is one to create a platform to highlight this

Besides survey results, what other scientific data can we collect to promote our DEI goals?
paul garcia
01:18:10
re: Dr. McDade's comments. Similar low numbers regarding promoted faculty members or leaders of private practice.

Re: Paul Garcia and Jim Duong. Although the number of Asian-American anesthesiologists may not be low, the percentage in leadership positions may not reflect the number.
paul garcia
01:21:52
agreed.
