Sigma Statement of Diversity and Inclusion

Diversity of membership is what makes any profession stronger, and nursing is no exception.

Since 1922, the Sigma Theta Tau International Honor Society of Nursing (Sigma) has embodied the attributes of our founders: love, courage, and honor. We pride ourselves on being a diverse, inclusive global organization that does not discriminate, and we firmly believe diversity in our membership makes us stronger. Although we are an apolitical organization, we take seriously our responsibility of ensuring a welcoming and respectful environment for our members worldwide. 

Sigma remains committed to the value and active engagement of a global community of nurses. We represent fairness, equality, inclusivity, and respect by the very nature of our core tenets and are against any form of discrimination. We will continue to welcome and celebrate our members’ rich diversity as we always have. 

Sigma will remain a voice within the US and world in support of our core values, including diversity and inclusiveness. We will continue to work collaboratively with members from all our global regions to fulfill our mission of advancing world health and celebrating nursing excellence in scholarship, leadership, and service.
