The ISPG Inclusion, Diversity, and Equity in Action (IDEA) Committee developed the statement below to be a strategic goal of the society. The ISPG Board formally adopted this statement in 2019 to recognize the importance of inclusiveness within the psychiatric genetics field.
Recognizing that diversity drives innovation and progress in science, the International Society of Psychiatric Genetics strives to promote inclusivity and equity for all, regardless of sex, age, race, ethnicity, nationality, culture, religious affiliation, disability, gender identity, sexual orientation, or socioeconomic status. We endeavor to create an environment of inclusivity, diversity, and equality through initiatives including consideration of presenters and chairs at our annual conference, mentorship opportunities, representation on our board of directors, delegation of duties, and education to the public.
Society Statement on Racism, Diversity, and Equity: We’re committed to diversity, equity, and inclusion. Together, we can be more and do more! We encourage everyone to strive to make the environment that helps shape us, as fair and just for each citizen of our planet as it can be. Read our full statement email HERE.
