Take A 10 Minute Survey to Advance Our Understanding of GI Workforce Diversity

Five GI societies are working together through the Intersociety Group on Diversity (IGD) to gather essential demographic data and insights on our workforce. Our goal is to better understand and then address issues of racial, ethnic, and gender diversity.
Your participation of just 10 minutes will help advance our understanding of workforce diversity and healthcare inequities across our field and on behalf of our patients. 
We recognize that you receive many invitations for surveys and appreciate your time and input. Your response will ensure a robust and representative data set and help set the direction for efforts by all the GI societies.

This research was developed by Folasade P. May, MD, PhD, MPhil; Harman Rahal, MD; James H. Tabibian, MD, PhD; and Liu Yang, PhD. The IGD, co-chaired by Darrell M. Gray, II, MD, MPH, and Rachel Issaka, MD, MAS, provided input.
The Intersociety Group on Diversity (IGD) is a coalition instituted by the AASLD, ACG, AGA, ASGE and NASPGHAN. The IGD aims to address important issues related to diversity, equity and inclusion collaboratively; increase diversity in gastroenterology among our societies’ members, our pipeline of trainees, and leadership; and eradicate health disparities in the patients and populations our members serve.
