Create a DEI mentorship program for department chairs and faculty via a collaboration between the BMES Diversity Committee, the AIMBE Diversity, and Inclusion Committee, and the AIMBE Committee for Underrepresented Minorities.
  Council of BME Diversity

Collaborate with the Council of BME Chairs to regularly convene leaders of departmental diversity, equity, and inclusivity (DEI) groups (i.e., the Council of BME Diversity) in an effort to effectively spread and thereby amplify successful activities.
  Virtual Seminars and Conference Session

Convene dedicated conference sessions and virtual seminars led by renowned subject matter experts to promote and foster discussions focused on bringing to light the conscious and subconscious biases, which disproportionately affect the Black community with a long-term effort to build findings into policy-driven action.
