CNS Climate Survey - What we Heard

From June to August 2021, CNS ran a member survey seeking feedback on the culture of CNS and their experiences in being a part of the Society, and through participation in annual conferences, webinars, and other events. This document aims to share highlights of the survey results. It will also serve as an important benchmark as we undertake future surveys to assess changes in member input, particularly as we undertake meaningful actions to foster a positive and inclusive environment for all members and support the nutrition community to engage in research and practices that help address structural determinants contributing to nutrition inequities.
