I-APS DEI Statement

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.
