DIVERSITY AND EQUITY COMMITTEE
The Diversity and Equity Committee (DEC) is an established committee within the Asian Pacific Society of Nephrology (APSN) and it reports directly to the Council of APSN. This committee believes that promoting diversity and equity among all members in APSN will ultimately contribute to APSN's goal of advancing nephrology and sharing the knowledge in the Asian-Pacific area.
- Work to promote equity for genders, age, career stages, and underrepresented groups in nephrology.
- Deliver a clear statement of diversity and equity on APSN homepage website and ensure transparency.
- Increase the visibility of underrepresented groups in nephrology in terms of membership.
- Provide advice to APSN committees on mentoring (i.e.that they should ensure mentoring is provided to diverse individuals, particularly from underrepresented groups*).
Including but not limited to underrepresented genders (women, transgender, and non-binary individuals), members from low-income countries, ethnic minorities/aboriginal populations, and members inpediatric nephrology, and other underrepresented fields.
