The next issue of IODA's quarterly Newsletter is now available! Dedicated to promoting diversity, equity, and inclusion in orthopaedics worldwide, our goal is to provide a platform for sharing initiatives, events, and resources that support diversity and highlight the achievements of underrepresented groups in the field.
In this quarter's issue, we eature articles on recent significant events including The British Association of Black Surgeons (BABS) Inaugural Conference, the Ladies in Orthopaedics New Zealand Day and the American Academy Orthopaedic Society conference. Additionally, we have news articles on the Ruth Jackson Orthopaedic Society Recognises Award Winners and a special feature on OrthoJoe podcast. In our Meet-a-Member feature, we introduce IODA Asia Pacific Regional Representative Margert Fok. Margert is a Hong Kong-based orthopaedic surgeon with a strong interest in improving diversity in orthopaedics. She shares her journey and insights into how she promotes diversity.
We look forward to bringing you more news, articles, and insights on promoting diversity and inclusion in orthopaedics worldwide in future issues of the IODA Newsletter. As always, we welcome your feedback and suggestions for future newsletters, and we encourage you to share your initiatives, events, and resources with us. Together, we can create a more diverse and inclusive orthopaedic community.
