Diversity, Health Equity, and Inclusion Statement

The Emergency Medicine Foundation (EMF) is committed to the principles of diversity, equity, and inclusion. This commitment requires that we seek to assure diversity in our Board, our staff, our scientific reviewers and our grantees and to assure inclusiveness in our processes and procedures. We support diversity in all of its forms, including but not limited to, country of origin, gender, sexual orientation, disability, education/training. We are particularly interested in promoting racial/ethnic diversity by increasing the number of EMF grantees who come from groups that are “underrepresented in biomedical research, specifically Blacks or African Americans, Hispanics or Latinos, American Indians or Alaska Natives, Native Hawaiians, and other Pacific Islanders”.1

We also seek to assure that the research supported by EMF includes investigations of longstanding historical health and health care inequities that affect Black/African American, Hispanic/ or Latinx, American Indian/Alaska Native, Native Hawaiian, and other Pacific Islander populations. We also seek to increase the geographic diversity of our grantees, the number and constitution of institutions from which our grantees are drawn including historically black colleges and universities and designated Hispanic serving institutions.
