In April-May 2021, SSAR’s Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Committee (DEIC) created and disseminated a membership diversity survey with several purposes:
- To establish a benchmark for future assessments of SSAR’s efforts towards recruiting and retaining a diverse membership through initiatives that promote diversity, equity, and inclusion.
- To recognize and welcome people of many identities who make up the current and future membership of SSAR.
- To help SSAR equitably serve the needs of all members.
The DEIC has completed a thorough report on the survey results. We encourage all SSAR leaders and committees to read and think deeply about the entire report, to consider how its findings might guide their current and future activities, and then to enact positive change on the institutional level. We encourage all SSAR members to learn from these findings and to consider that they as individuals can contribute a more inclusive environment in SSAR and in all their spheres of influence.
