AAMRI’s Diversity and inclusion statement

AAMRI’s Diversity and inclusion statement

13th August, 2020

We are committed to diversity and inclusion in medical research.

We celebrate diversity of our workforce in all ways including gender, race, ethnicity, disability, age, sexual orientation, and gender identity. We recognise that it makes us stronger.

We recognise that discrimination holds back research progress and that the ability, achievements and contributions of many people have been undervalued because of unfair discrimination.

We will work with our members to take a leading role to end all forms of discrimination and we will promote inclusivity.

 

Acknowledgement of country

We recognise the traditional lands on which medical research is undertaken, and we pay our respects to the elders, past, present, and emerging. We acknowledge the many achievements of our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander researchers and their contribution to improving the health and wellbeing of all Australians.
