ACOOG DIVERSITY POLICY STATEMENT
FOR VOLUNTEER AND LEADERSHIP POSITIONS

The American College of Osteopathic Obstetricians and Gynecologists (hereinafter referred to as “ACOOG”) promotes an environment of respect, fairness, integrity, and inclusiveness in all of its dealings. ACOOG respects and values the diversity of its members. ACOOG also recognizes that diversity and inclusiveness in volunteer and leadership positions strengthen the vitality of ACOOG and are fundamental values of our organization.

ACOOG is committed to enlisting and promoting talented volunteers and leaders without regard to race, color, religion, national origin, gender, perceived gender, disability, age, military or veteran status, marital or domestic partner status, sexual orientation, personal appearance, family responsibilities, type of practice, and/or political affiliation. Maximizing the diversity of our volunteers and leaders also allows us to benefit from the talents and different perspectives of all our members. ACOOG encourages members who may not have been involved with ACOOG before to apply for volunteer or leadership positions. As a diverse membership organization, the assistance and willingness of our members to participate are essential for ACOOG to remain relevant for members and the women we serve, to maintain the leadership pipeline, and to move forward our mission, vision, core values, and organizational goals.
