Announcement of SMBE Values Statement and Code of Conduct

Dear SMBE Members,

I am delighted to be writing to you on behalf of the SMBE Council to report back that the membership voted strongly in favor of our Values Statement and Code of Conduct. We have now incorporated these in our documentation (see http://www.smbe.org/smbe/ABOUT/ValueStatement.aspx and http://www.smbe.org/smbe/ABOUT/CodeofConduct.aspx).

We pledged earlier to work even harder to promote inclusion, diversity, and equity in SMBE, see https://www.smbe.org/smbe/HOME/TabId/37/ArtMID/1395/ArticleID/93/SMBE-Announcement-What-can-we-do-to-fight-intolerance-racism-and-discrimination-now-and-in-the-future.aspx. The new Values Statement and a Code of Conduct are an important part of this initiative.

Wishing you all a safe and peaceful remainder of 2020 and that the next year will be a better one.

On behalf of the Council,

Marta L. Wayne
SMBE President
