Our Ethos & Spirit
ICDA is committed to openness: Membership is open to everyone.
ICDA is committed to diversity and inclusion. It aims to represent diversity across nations, populations, ancestries, and genders, as well as across stakeholders and scientific disciplines.
ICDA is built on trust. This requires transparency and openness in setting directions and making decisions, including seeking feedback from ICDA members with thoughtfulness and consistency.
ICDA aims to coordinate with the many highly functional human genetics activities already underway.
ICDA works closely with national and philanthropic funders, biopharma and tech companies, and scientific journals.
