DEI TASKFORCE UPDATE

Diversity, equity, and inclusion are integral to the NANOS culture and we are committed to creating an equitable and inclusive Society for all.

That said, NANOS is now collecting new demographic data in the NANOS member profile and meeting registration as part of our strategic plan’s Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion goals. These questions are optional and your answers will remain confidential and de-identified. Your participation will give us a better picture of who makes up our Society and help us ensure that we are a diverse, equitable, and inclusive group.

Here is how you can help:

Together we can overcome the challenges of today and build a better tomorrow for everyone.
