DEI Summit to Be Held in Conjunction With AACI/CCAF Annual Meeting

In partnership with the American Cancer Society and the Cancer Center DEI Network, AACI will hold the second Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) Summit on September 30 in conjunction with the 2023 AACI/CCAF Annual Meeting at the Salamander Washington DC. Registration for the summit opens Friday, August 4.

The half-day event will convene cancer center leaders, researchers, and administrators to share insights on how institutions are enhancing DEI efforts, including how cancer centers can enhance partnerships with Minority Serving Institutions and how states are navigating policy changes related to DEI.

The inaugural DEI Summit was held in March 2023 in San Diego and featured sessions on advancing a culture of institutional excellence and approaching Plan to Enhance Diversity (PED) data and metrics; and roundtable discussions on strategies to continue to enhance DEI efforts moving forward.
