The #InclusionPledge provides a transparent and tangible framework across stakeholders to identify and track equity actions, holding organizations accountable to making specific, measurable outcomes that will result in dismantling systemic barriers and co-creating solutions that will result in health equity for Black women and end disparities in our lifetime.
We believe that literacy, financial barriers, access, social, systemic and hereditary backgrounds should not be determinants of life and health equity. Particularly as patients are impacted by COVID and post COVID pandemic repercussions, the pandemic has had and will continue to impact health disparities for black women within the cancer research and cancer care ecosystem. In order to continue to accelerate and make an impact as it relates to disparities and Black women, the #InclusionPledge is imperative.
We pledge to only participate in initiatives — panels, boards, planning committees, programs — that include the experience of Black women; and we commit to taking specific actions to dismantle systemic barriers and end disparities for Black women in our lifetime.
