MEM-006: Support and Respect for Members

Support and Respect for Members: The Wisconsin Medical Society (Society) will advance the privileges of all members with an interest in participating in official business of the Society, regardless of age, race, ethnicity, national origin, creed or religion, class, sex or gender, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, physical ability or disability, or cultural background. The Society encourages the civil, respectful and appropriate behavior of all people during all official Society events in order to keep the focus of meetings on the Society business at hand. The Society respects the attendance at official Society events of members who are parents or caregivers and respects the choice of members to engage in breastfeeding during official Society events, given the known health benefits of breastfeeding.
