MSU cares about Rare Lives

Rare Advocacy Movement (RAM)

MSU’s Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion is not a trend or P.R. campaign

Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion are not buzz words, a trend, or a P.R. campaign for our organization.

MSU has chosen to authentically approach DEI through the implementation of meaningful solutions developed by the “Our Lives Matter” DEI Initiative.

We look forward to unLearning in order to ensure all voices are heard and all lives matter equally. https://www.rareadvocacymovement.com/wecare

MSU on Rare Advocacy Movement

MSU’s Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Committee

MSU’s Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Committee’s goal is to amplify more wide-ranging voices, while increasing MSU’s ability to serve the needs of our diverse, multicultural, and multi-abled myositis community!

The committee will advise the Board on matters such as diversity education and increasing participation in governance by people of all backgrounds, amplify the voices of our minority members and encourage their participation in the MyositisLIFE website, cultivate relationships with other organizations dedicated to the health disparities in minority and at-risk groups, encourage our members to learn more from each other, share more cultural information about all of our members and their backgrounds through cultural celebrations.

All of these activities will help MSU to further fulfill its vision which is to aim to “create a world where patients, caregivers, and providers have better knowledge, support, and understanding of myositis.” This committee will work to build programs and relationships to further MSU’s mission and vision; making our work more inclusive and equitable for all myositis patients and care partners.

An important first step all myositis stakeholders (Board members, volunteers, myositis patient and caregiver members, doctors, researchers, and all other health professionals working in the myositis community) can do is take the Harvard Implicit Bias Inventories, found here.

We stand together with all myositis patients and aim to better understand, and further explore, how the lives of members from different cultures are affected by myositis and what we at MSU can do to form better partnerships to further the cause of our members everywhere. Volunteer opportunities to join the DEI committee are here!
