Inclusive Gatherings (Sponsored by the Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Task Force)
Individuals do NOT need to be registered for the Mid-Winter Meeting to attend.
The SNMMI Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DE&I) Task Force is excited to bring a new series to the SNMMI membership – Inclusive Gatherings! These events will be hosted regularly, and at different times during the day and evening, with a goal of bringing together underrepresented minority members and individuals who support and encourage a commitment to diversity within the SNMMI and medical community. The Inclusive Gatherings will be informal meet-ups, hosted on Web-Ex, where individuals can chat (camera on or off) with their fellow SNMMI members. Attendees should feel comfortable attending the events in their entirety or just stop in to say hello. As the Inclusive Gatherings are meant to be more social, there will not be an CE offered at this time.
The first series of Inclusive Gatherings will be held January 25-27.
Registration for these events opens on/around January 15, 2021.
