There is great interest in gathering information concerning initiatives and concepts aimed at enhancing diversity within the scientific community - adding to the richness amongst and across peoples, cultures, ethnicity, gender, religions... for the benefit of science and humanity. Our member Societies participate in a variety of activities that result in a shift in attitudes, understanding, awareness, and an increase in diversity across science and the scientific enterprise.

In an attempt to gather this information, the CSSP Diversity and Science Careers Committee is seking your input. It is our intention that this be a quickly accomplished task. You may be involved in more initiatives than you have time to identify. In that case, please select those you believe to be the most successful - the best of the best. If you have URLs that may take us to more complete or more detailed information, please be sure to identify them.

This information will be shared with CSSP member Societies at an upcoming CSSP meeting. The initiatives for each Society may serve as models for others, provide for better possible collaborative links among Societies, and open dialogue on how we may expedite the cultural changes that naturally facilitate diversification within the scientific community.

The form below provides the opportunity to list up to five projects. Please go throught the process more than once if your Society has more than five concepts you'd like to share. When you have finished with the survey, please use the "submit information" button at the bottom of the page.

Please add any additional comments you might have at the bottom of this web-form.

Thank you for sharing these ideas that will lead to increased strength in the scientific societies we represent.
