Updates from the Ethics  Committee

The Ethics Committee, in collaboration with the Diversity Equity and Inclusion committee, are hosting a hybrid roundtable at the IASNR conference this summer. The combination panel was in part inspired by previous discussions in Council about the distinction between punitive and aspirational ethics, and a decision was reached to have DEI and Ethics in dialogue for the professional and inclusionary aspirations of IASNR. The panel is titled “Reflections on progress to date and priorities for moving forward”. In the roundtable,  the teams will share findings from previous roundtables. This will be followed by a facilitated discussion about what members want to see for the future in terms of ethics and key diversity, equity, and inclusion issues related to research and teaching. We hope you can attend! Additionally, the Ethics Committee has been hard at work to finalize revisions to the Code of Ethics. As a reminder, we did a major overhaul of the Code, which was adopted by IASNR membership in 2022. Now, we will be voting on another set of revisions to the Code at the All Membership meeting on 6/26/24 in conjunction with the IASNR Conference in Cairns through an online ballot so that members who are not present at the conference can participate in the vote.
