I-APS Leadership recently composed a Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) statement for the Society. The statement is below. We are seeking any comments or feedback you may have on the I-APS DEI statement. Your feedback may be anonymous, but please feel free to provide your name if you feel comfortable doing so.
The Inter-American Photochemical Society (I-APS) pledges to provide a welcoming and safe environment for all members of our multi-national community. We welcome and support members of all races, religions, ethnicities, citizenships, sex, gender expressions and identities, political opinions, abilities, and ages – and stand firmly against discrimination or intimidation of any sort based on these identities. It is our goal to promote diversity of all types by committing to equity and inclusion in our organizational programs, events, membership, and awards. We are dedicated to creating and maintaining a society that allows each of us to reach our best potential and to mentoring others to attain their self-identified goals.
