Diversity Statement

The Materials Research Society recognizes that diversity drives innovation, excellence and new discoveries. We charge our membership and leadership to engage all demographic groups worldwide in advancing science and technology to improve the quality of life. 

Racism, Discrimination and Inequality Statement

The Materials Research Society is deeply saddened and disturbed by recent events that have brought to light the dangers of systemic racism, discrimination, and inequality, especially as they pertain to people of color. All scientists, and all people, should be able to live their lives and pursue their livelihood inside safe environments that welcome a myriad of perspectives and reject violence as a solution.

The Materials Research Society is dedicated to promoting diversity, egalitarianism, and inclusivity for all people, regardless of race, gender, orientation, or affiliation.  We believe that bias and intolerance are not only unethical, but weaken our social fabric.  We firmly believe that diversity strengthens the scientific enterprise and society as a whole.  As an organization, we stand with those who promote inclusivity and seek to enable all of us to make valued contributions to improving everyday life for everyone.
