Scope and Mandate of the Diversity Office

The goal of a CMS Diversity Office is to foster a working environment where all members of the Collaboration can thrive and bring in their talents, irrespective of age, career status, employment situation, institutional affiliation, geographical location, nationality, gender, ethnicity, family situation, sexual orientation, or disabilities.

The mandate of the Diversity Office is to:

  • advise management and individuals on diversity related matters
  • propose actions to promote diversity and create awareness
  • monitor and record statistical information related to diversity
  • actively listen to Collaboration membersí concerns
  • report regularly to the Collaboration about status and progress of diversityrelated issues
  • collaborate with relevant bodies outside CMS such as the CERN Diversity Office if required

The Diversity Office is a standing body of the Collaboration Board, with the Collaboration Board Chairperson and the Spokesperson being ex-officio members. The Diversity Office will have both closed and open meetings, at least at each of the typically five CMS weeks per year, and will report regularly to the Collaboration Board. The Diversity Office chairperson(s) become part of the Search and Award Committee.

Contact Information

Anonymous Message Box

Use this form to communicate confidentially with the CMS Diversity Office Co-Chairs.

We encourage you to report any instances of inappropriate behavior - e.g. harassment, bullying, or deviation from CMS or CERN code of conduct. The incidents could also relate to meetings or interactions beyond CMS at workshops or conferences when presenting on behalf of CMS. This message box can also be used to make suggestions for any future action items for the Diversity office. All information you provide will be treated in confidence. If you would like us to reply and follow up on the incident, then please provide contact details. We will also use the messages to gauge the environment of the collaboration and to identify any persistent common issues.

CMS Code of Conduct


The CMS collaboration consists of members with varied national origin, ethnic background, race, gender identity, sexual orientation, gender, age, physical ability, and religion. As a community, we are committed to being positive and inclusive in all regards.

We follow the CERN Code of Conduct. Members of CMS must maintain a professional environment in an atmosphere of tolerance and mutual respect and abstain from all forms of harassment, abuse, intimidation, bullying, and mistreatment of any kind. This includes, but is not limited to, intimidation, sexual or crude jokes or comments, offensive images, and unwelcome physical conduct. Members must keep in mind that behavior and language deemed acceptable to one person may not be to another.

We commit to helping our community adhere to this code of conduct and speak up when we see possible violations of it. We strive to treat those outside of CMS as we would members of our own community. In the event that the letter or the spirit of this code has been violated, appropriate action will be taken, up to and including procedures specified in Annex A3.2 of the CMS Constitution.
