Anesthesiology Leadership

Faculty and resident work together in OR

Building a culture of diversity, inclusion and anti-racism

The Spring of 2020 brought race and issues of inclusion and diversity to the forefront unlike any time in recent memory. In response, we’ve seen leaders across all medical fields stop and question their own roles in perpetuating racism. But the question is: Now what? How do we move from listening to action? How do we intentionally foster a community of inclusion and antiracism?


RADAR can provide the resources you need to create the opportunities and support systems that can ultimately help enhance diversity in academic anesthesiology.

Creating Inclusive Organizations

Resources to help departments in reaching their inclusivity goals.

Understanding Implicit Bias

Resources to help identify and mitigate bias in patient care and the selection of faculty and trainees.

Anti-Racism and Health Equity

Resources to assist departments in becoming anti-racist.

Leadership Opportunities

RADAR is committed to promoting diversity in leadership positions across the field. As such, we will occasionally provide information about opportunities across academic anesthesiology.
