Radiology business leaders to tackle diversity, equity and inclusion

The leading organization comprised of business administrators and billing professionals in the diagnostic radiology industry announced its commitment to bringing more diversity, equity and inclusion to their ranks. The Radiology Business Management Association (RBMA) is launching a new Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Task Force, charged with analyzing RBMA’s current state, gathering data, and determining how it can become more inclusive; they have released a statement outlining their plans.  

I'm proud to be a member of the RBMA Board of Directors. And I’m also very proud of the significant efforts made by the leadership of Reed Smith to bring diversity, equity and inclusion to our ranks. Our leadership has understood that these goals will not happen unless we are intentional in making it happen. I see the RBMA’s commitment here as embracing the same intentionality to create a diverse, inclusive workplace that actively reaches out to people not currently on the path to a career in the diagnostic imaging industry. That's the equity part – we can no longer rely solely on the networks of current employees as the primary source of bringing other people into this industry space. Achieving success will not be easy. But we must endeavor to try to make the changes to make us all better and inclusive.

RBMA said it hopes to issue an actionable plan to help diversity of membership and emphasized this will not happen through a single program or initiative.
