After the murder of George Floyd in the late Spring of 2020 and the protests that followed, many organizations, PRIM&R included, found themselves in an overdue moment of introspection. A part of this work included an internal review of how we acknowledge days and months on the calendar that commemorate heritage and awareness groups (e.g. Black History Month, LGBT Pride Month, Disability History/Awareness Month).

PRIM&R's Diversity Advisory Group (DAG) works to advance PRIM&R's goal of promoting a diverse and inclusive environment. It advises PRIM&R staff on strategies for fostering a membership community where differences can flourish and works to raise the profile of diversity as an issue that matters to the broader research oversight field. One way that PRIM&R is committed to acting against racism is by sharing information, and the DAG encourages members of the PRIM&R community to support the expansion of resources by contributing suggestions.

When I started my research career back in 2004, I was working in the biggest trauma center in the Atlanta area, Grady Healthcare System. I had arrived in the country under a work visa to help with the Department of Orthopaedics' clinical trials. I remember the nervousness of speaking to potential study participants because I was not only new to clinical research, having only done chart review projects in the past, I was also new in America and America’s history of research with minorities.
