The Academic Pediatric Association (APA)’s Anti-Racism and Diversity Taskforce, tasked with determining tactics to combat systemic racism and discrimination against the underrepresented in academic pediatrics, created this toolkit to readily equip academic pediatricians with the necessary resources to achieve these goals. This toolkit is made to support pediatric clinicians in all facets of their academic practice, including leadership-practice, peer-peer, provider-patient, and educator-trainee interactions.
