EMBS President Message – Diversity & Inclusion
We continue to face shocking, but not unprecedented challenges involving systemic racial discrimination. As a professional organization for all engineers and scientists, we would like to strongly denounce racial discrimination. As the largest international society leading biomedical research and innovation, EMBS is highly committed to supporting diversity, inclusion, and equal opportunities for all of our members and our communities and has zero tolerance for racial discrimination.
EMBS is at the forefront of innovating and translating technologies to benefit healthcare for everyone. We invite you to join us in ensuring that we bring engineering and related STEM fields to all young people completely agnostic of any other considerations. As a Society that strives for healthcare innovations for all, we must work together to increase our awareness of systemic racism. EMBS emphasizes the importance and highly valuable benefits of diverse individuals and is committed to increasing diversity and inclusion in all our activities and engagements.
