Ceramic and Glass Industry Foundation

The Foundation is a global partnership among organizations devoted to science, engineering, and technology of ceramics and glasses.

The American Ceramic Society (ACerS) stands for inclusivity. We are saddened and disturbed by recent events that have shone a light on the systemic racism, discrimination, and inequality that exists today. ACerS strives to be a leader by working toward solutions now and moving forward. ACerS seeks to foster an environment promoting the free expression and exchange of scientific ideas for its entire international community. We are committed to ensuring equality of treatment and opportunity and freedom from harassment for all members regardless of race, gender, nationality, religious beliefs, gender identity, color, age, marital status, sexual orientation, disabilities, ancestry, personal appearance, or any other basis not relevant to scientific merit. Any violation of our harassment or discrimination policies is addressed immediately by Society leadership, and not tolerated. Finally, ACerS has an active Diversity & Inclusion Subcommittee that works with Society leadership to seek ways to be inclusive of all people.
