Diversity Engagement Survey

In collaboration with the University of Massachusetts Medical School (UMMS) and DataStar, the AAMC announces the release of the Diversity Engagement Survey. The DES is 22 items long and can be administered to students, faculty, and staff. There is a minimal response burden, and the rich analyses will allow institutions to develop a meaningful inclusion scorecard that characterizes their progress toward creating an inclusive work environment.
