Eureka Institute Core Values
The Eureka Institute was founded on the principles of addressing unmet medical needs through innovation. From its inception, Eureka has been a global translational medicine educational organisation, recognising the need to engage, empower and connect medical professionals at all stages of their careers through a common principle of speeding idea to clinic to benefit patients in need. We recognise that ingenuity comes from all corners of the globe, from all races, ethnicities, and cultures, and that only by recognising and empowering all ideas will we be able to solve the vexing medical challenges facing patients afflicted with disease.
Guided by the Eureka credo, we are committed to diversity, equity, and inclusion as core values of the Eureka Institute.
Neutrality and Equipoise: Eureka’s belief is that all humans have the same dignity and right to access the benefits, which Translational Medicine brings to bettering lives. Regardless of the Country and political system, one of Eureka’s objectives is to facilitate, beyond borders and boundaries, access to Translational Medicine and to contribute to its effectiveness by inspiring and facilitating exposure and integration. Thus, Eureka’s geopolitical approach is one of inclusiveness, dedication to human dignity and human rights and political neutrality.
Our commitment to Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) is critical to growing and strengthening our relevance, credibility, and effectiveness as a premier translational medicine educational institution, as well as a global network of translational science leaders and visionaries. We recognise the need to pro-actively re-invigorate and actively maintain our commitment to DEI to advance our mission and remain relevant to the global translational medicine community. We are vigilant in recognizing the legacy of gender, racial, religious, and other discriminations and ongoing biases that persist. We recognise that there exist cultural norms and structures that perpetuate inequalities. Thus, we must consciously work to ensure a safe and unbiased environment and organization that sustains the principles of diversity, equity, and inclusion.
Eureka Core Values
We appreciate and honour the different perspectives that are inherent in the human experience. To that end, we strive to create a student and faculty composition that is diverse and reflective of the global community that we engage and serve.
We align our policies, practices, and resources so that people of all races, genders, cultures, and socioeconomic statuses have an opportunity to participate in Eureka programmes, and to grow the collective global Eureka network. We seek to empower all to grow Eureka, as faculty, leaders, and representatives of the Eureka within and beyond the Eureka global network.
We strive to create an environment and global network in which everyone feels valued and respected, and in which all ideas are honoured.
