The ORS is committed to the full and equitable participation of a diverse scientific community in its membership, activities, and governance. Diversity plays an integral role in achieving our mission to advance orthopaedic research worldwide. It is essential to our core values of scientific excellence and integrity, innovation, collaboration, and partnership that together define the Society, its work and its membership.
The Society, therefore, promotes diversity and inclusion with respect to member race, age, ethnicity, nationality, gender, religion, or any other form of social diversity. The ORS further supports diversity in the fields of investigation performed by its membership, just as it does the diversity of its members themselves, in promoting our belief that this will result in the greatest potential benefit to the worldwide community.
