The American Orthopaedic Association is committed to expanding diversity, equity, and inclusion within orthopaedic surgery. This includes programming and thought-leadership efforts, creating resources, identifying opportunities to collaborate with other orthopaedic organizations, such as the Perry Initiative, and internal efforts to include diverse perspectives represented in all AOA activities and initiatives.

DEI Educational Offerings
AOA Diversity Liaisons have compiled a list of educational offerings organized by AOA and other organizations to provide a single source for such information.
Have you been tasked with increasing diversity within your institution or practice? AOA has created a repository of resources/tools to assist you with your efforts.
AOA Partnerships
With several orthopaedic societies focusing on similar goals, the AOA aims to collaborate with other organizations to achieve greater success.
