Corporate Change Champions (C3)


C3 Change Champions logo

Interventional Radiology is synonymous with innovation. At the heart of this innovation is a deeply rooted partnership between IR care-providers and technology manufacturers. Such impactful partnerships drive career advancement, offer lifelong engagement opportunities, and shape the field of IR.
While the countless success stories born from these rich partnerships can be celebrated, much work remains to be done in reducing notable disparities.

To this end, SIR is pleased to announce the launch of the C3 (Corporate Change Champions) initiative, a multi-pronged program designed to support underrepresented SIR members seeking corporate partnership opportunities.
