Posted by: SCMR Headquarters
The Society for Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance (SCMR) is committed to fostering, cultivating, and preserving a culture of equality, diversity, and inclusion.
Our people are the most valuable asset we have. The collective sum of their individual differences, life experiences, knowledge, innovation, self-expression, and talent represents a significant part of our culture and reputation. Our Society embraces and encourages diversity such as in age, color, disability, ethnicity, family or marital status, gender identity or expression, language, national origin, physical and mental ability, political affiliation, race, religion, sexual orientation, socio-economic status, veteran status, and other characteristics that make our membership unique.
SCMR’s commitment to diversity is applicable—but not limited—to our practices and policies on leadership and volunteer selection, professional development and training, and ongoing work to improve cardiovascular health by advancing the field of CMR.
All members, volunteers, staff, and industry partners have a responsibility to treat others with dignity and respect at all times. They are expected to exhibit conduct that reflects inclusion at SCMR Headquarters, for business communications, and at all SCMR supported events.
