We, the members of the Society for Imaging Informatics in Medicine (SIIM), believe that every member of our organization should be valued and feel included. All voices should be heard.
To ensure a collaborative and inclusive culture, all members should conduct themselves in a professional manner, respecting all individuals, including patients and colleagues. Furthermore, we must advocate for those who are unable to do so themselves.
We welcome all members and do not discriminate based upon gender, sexual orientation, nationality, race, ethnicity, age, ability, religion, or experience. We are committed to pursuing greater diversity and representation within our organization through policymaking, mentorship, and associated programs, and external affiliations/collaborations.
While we embrace free speech and the power of open discourse and debate during our professional society meetings and on social media platforms, we do not condone any form of harassment, bullying behaviors, or speech that marginalizes or attacks others.
By upholding this endorsed Statement of Professionalism, we promise to treat each human being with steadfast dignity, kindness and respect. The organization of SIIM strongly endorses a professional, all-welcoming and diverse environment, which we believe is essential to our underlying central mission to advance medical imaging informatics in a multi-disciplinary community.
Together, we can do so much!
