Abstract

Diversity, equity, and inclusion represent interconnected goals meant to ensure that all individuals, regardless of their innate identity characteristics, feel welcomed and valued among their peers. Equity is achieved when all individuals have equal access to leadership and career advancement opportunities as well as fair compensation for their work. It is well-known that the unique backgrounds and perspectives contributed by a diverse workforce strengthen and improve medical organizations overall. The Society for Vascular Surgery (SVS) is committed to supporting the highest quality leadership, patient care, surgical education, and societal recommendations through promoting diversity, equity, and inclusion within the SVS. The overarching goal of this document is to provide specific context and guidance for enhancing diversity, equity, and inclusion within the SVS as well as setting the tone for conduct and processes beyond the SVS, within other national and regional vascular surgery organizations and practice settings.
