George Floyd's murder, and the public response, has awoken many to the deeply embedded racism and systemic inequalities in our society. The American Neurological Association is the home of academic neurology, with a mission to advance and support scholarly advances in the field in the realms of clinical innovation, education, transformative research, and professional development. Since its inception in 1874, its first 140 years was an embodiment of (white) advantage — an honorific society that largely functioned through networks attainable only to some. The American Neurological Association is challenging itself to become a champion of 21st century academic neurology. Given that its past was marred by systemic racism, the American Neurological Association is working hard to find new ways to rectify these exclusionary practices. To meet these challenges, the American Neurological Association is redoubling its efforts around inclusion and diversity. This summer, American Neurological Association, with the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine Department of Neurology, is reaching out to its membership and the wider academic community to examine the scope of the problem, solicit feedback, and prepare an actionable path forward that will be unique for the organization, neurology, and neuroscience. We envision remaking our community to respond to the perception that it still carries too many vestiges of its exclusive past and does not provide a welcoming home for all.
