EANO wishes to strengthen its role in supporting diversity in Neuro-Oncology-related professions in Europe and has created a new EANO disparity committee in 2019.
The Disparity Committee is chaired by Susan Short and will support diversity in clinical care and research activities in the field of Neuro-Oncology. The committee will focus on identifying issues concerning disparity across Europe, exploring the needs of the EANO membership in this area, and on elaborating innovative strategies to address disparity in the Neuro-Oncology community. Interactions with other EANO committees will be sought, and our group welcomes collaborations with other [external] disparity working groups.

Susan Short, Chair, United Kingdom (Chair)
Karin Piil, Denmark (next-chair)
Florien Boele, United Kingdom
Linda Dirven, The Netherlands
Norbert Galldiks, Germany
Giuseppe Minniti, Italy
Roberta Rudà, Italy
