Our Commitment to Diversity, Equity and Inclusion
The ATA is strongly committed to diversity, equity and inclusion in every aspect of our organization. We will provide a welcoming environment to all our members and to the constituents that we serve. In that regard, we will continuously work to create a culture that welcomes diverse members because we are stronger when we embrace and celebrate our differences. Of equal importance to the ATA is being inclusive so that our members have a sense of belonging through active engagement and participation in all our activities.
We will also seek to provide equal opportunities for every member worldwide. We will be intentional in our elimination of disparities and biases that may exist so our members will thrive and grow professionally. The ATA will continue to ask the important, actionable questions, and create a culture that makes inclusion and equity the guiding principle of every decision and every action.
The process of achieving diversity, equity, and inclusion will be a journey, not a destination. We are embracing diversity, equity and inclusion because it is the right thing to do.
Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Forum
We have created an online forum for ATA’s members to connect and discuss issues related to diversity equity, and inclusion. This is also a space for conversation on reducing health disparities, fostering diversity in the next generation of thyroidologists and researchers, and exploring other important issues.
