ISCB Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion



ISCB is committed to creating a safe, inclusive, and equal society for all our members.  These values are enshrined in the Society’s code of conduct, values, and ethics. We acknowledge, respect, and promote the value of a diverse community as core to our international organization and culture.

ISCB continues to seek to create a diverse and inclusive environment where all can come together, meet, exchange ideas, and work toward goals in an atmosphere of safety, respect and civility.  The ISCB Board of Directors approved ISCB’s first Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion Strategic Plan as proposed  by ISCB Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion Committee.
