The Society strives to live by a set of values which guide our work and our actions on a daily basis:
Our mission: People with MS can live their best lives as we stop MS in its tracks, restore what has been lost and end MS forever
Our vision: a world free of MS
MS does not discriminate and neither do we.
The National Multiple Sclerosis Society embraces and celebrates diversity and inclusion as the core of our organization. We value differences among individuals across multiple dimensions including, but not limited to race, ethnicity, age, gender, sexual orientation, physical ability, religion, spiritual beliefs, and socioeconomic status. We believe that the more we include diverse perspectives and experiences in our work, the better able we are to achieve the organization’s ongoing mission of mobilizing people and resources to drive research for a cure and to address the challenges of everyone affected by MS. We create and implement strategies that attract, develop, and retain the expertise, energy, and commitment of a diverse group of talented individuals. By doing so, we boldly and more effectively drive key initiatives to create a world free of MS.
