In March the European Society of Intensive Care Medicine (ESICM) (esicm.org) announced its Diversity Task Force (pictured), which will draft a policy paper and code of conduct related to gender, gender identity, age, sexual orientation, race, culture, socioeconomic status and multi professionalism. ESICM is the first major international medical society to publicly announce the formation of such a group.

In a press release the Society stated: “All members of ESICM, regardless of their gender, gender identity, age, sexual orientation, race, culture, socioeconomic status and multi professionalism should feel welcome and respected. Opportunities should be equal for every member within the society.” More information will be made available at the ESICM LIVES 2018 annual congress in Paris in October.
