CRSS-SCT Statement Against Racism and Discrimination of Any Form

In recent years, the World has increasingly witnessed discrimination against ethnic minorities, indigenous peoples, and people with various race, gender, religion, language, sexual orientation and disability. The Canadian Remote Sensing Society embraces principles of equity, diversity, and inclusion and strongly condemns any act of discrimination through private or institutional racism. This includes discrimination based on race, gender, cultural background, country of origin, and religion. The Society is bilingual and inclusive, and represents a multicultural group of scientists, professionals, and students from academia, government, and the private sector in remote sensing and geospatial sciences. Everyone must be treated equally without any discrimination in their working environment. Members of the Society are invited to reflect on this statement so that we can look, ourselves, for ways to encourage dignity, respect, and understanding in our daily encounters.
