Equity-minded learning and workplace environments:

An equity-minded learning and workplace environment is achieved when every person in the academic medical community — medical students, residents, fellows, faculty, and staff — has the opportunity to attain their full potential and no one is disadvantaged because of their social position or group identity (e.g. race, ethnicity, age, gender identity, sexual orientation, language, religion, physical/mental/developmental abilities).Academic medical centers must embrace equity-mindedness and conscious inclusion if they are to realize the full benefits of a diverse workforce. https://www.aamc.org/news-insights/achieving-excellence-through-equity-diversity-and-inclusion
