Despite 30 years of investment supporting women and scientists from underrepresented populations in science, the lack of inclusive diversity among ASM’s scientific journals, meetings, awards and committees signals a necessary examination of our systems, and a shift in thinking and practice. We must build a home where people of different perspectives and identities contribute to the production of new scientific knowledge and talent; a home where these people have opportunities to share their research findings, engage in scientific discourse and demonstrate their scientific expertise.

In fall 2018, ASM established the ASM Taskforce on Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI). The taskforce is an external advisory group to the ASM Board of Directors seeking to do the following:

  • Promote a culture of inclusion.
  • Ensure growth and sustainability.
  • Identify benchmarks of success.
