The promotion of diversity, inclusion and equality is a theme of this year’s annual meeting. We invite meeting participants to join us for a panel discussion with three accomplished leaders who have promoted equity and inclusivity by dismantling barriers that stood in their way. We will begin with an introduction from each panelist, who will discuss their career path and associated challenges. Afterwards, our panelists will answer questions from the audience.
This panel builds upon the pre-conference workshop on Diversity, Equity and Inclusion.
