WCTC Mission Statement on Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI)
The World Congress on Thyroid Cancer (WCTC) recognizes as self-evident that we can most effectively educate ourselves and our colleagues about the best care of patients with thyroid nodules and thyroid cancer when all relevant voices – including those of minority, disadvantaged and marginalized individuals – are heard and recognized. For this reason, we are committed to making the World Congress as welcoming as possible to members of all marginalized groups. We support cultural equity for all attendees and faculty, regardless of ethnicity, age, religion, disability, race, gender, sexual orientation, or any other individual or group identity. We will seek to prioritize attendance and program contributions from underrepresented groups in the World Congress. Furthermore, our Committee on Diversity, Equity and Inclusion will measure, analyze and report the effects of our actions regarding inclusive programming, cultural competence, and recognition of contributions from underrepresented groups. Through these means, we will strive to create a culture of access for all individuals, allowing those of all backgrounds and identities to feel welcomed and engaged in the World Congress.
