MRS Corporate Parter Program

MRS Diversifying Materials Corporate Partner Program

Supporting the Society's Core Value of being inclusive and egalitarian, and furthering the MRS Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) aspiration, MRS's refined Corporate Partner Program will focus on advancing these values within the profession and within the Society.   

MRS embraces diversity, equity and inclusion by actively engaging our diverse global membership, supporting the careers of underrepresented researchers and investing in community actions to address bias and end inequities.

 

Corporate Partners will now be able to participate in an important part of the MRS mission. By supporting the presentation of educational opportunities and events throughout the year, Corporate Partners will gain visibility and access to exclusive benefits, including opportunities for brand recognition, networking and recruitment of MRS members and MRS Spring and Fall Meeting attendees.

Corporate Partners will be:

  • Positioned as DEI leaders in the industry
  • Provided visibility across the Society and at targeted events
  • Encouraged to share their own corporate stories and successes in advancing diversity


Thank you to our 2022 Corporate Partners.

As we head into the second half of the year, we are able to provide reduced pricing for all levels of support, while adding increased levels of recognition.
