Please provide a summary of this paper.

The diversity of practicing urologists is disproportionate to that of the United States population, and there's evidence to support that diversity, equity, and inclusion or DEI efforts in health care are associated with better outcomes. So it's really critical to recruit and retain diverse talent in urology to improve patient care and our health care system overall. This paper was created by the Society of Women in Urology Task Force on increasing DEI in residency recruitment. The task force identified 3 critical areas where programs can incorporate DEI principles into their recruitment strategies. These include defining a program's mission and values, using holistic review for the application process, and objective interviews. The other thing we did was discuss strategies to integrate principles of DEI within the existing residency program structure.
