Diversity & Inclusion
ACerS is committed to cultivating a diverse, inclusive, and equitable environment for all in the global ceramics and glass community.
Fostering a welcoming environment for all
The American Ceramic Society represents all people involved in the global ceramics and glass community. Our common enthusiasm for solving grand challenges with ceramic and glass materials binds us and leaves no room for artificial boundaries. Therefore, we must continually challenge ourselves to create an interpersonal culture of diversity in the Society and do our best to export it throughout our sphere of influence.
As part of our commitment to cultivating a diverse, inclusive, and equitable environment for all in the ceramics and glass community, we have curated this webpage to give members a transparent account of all our ongoing initiatives to achieve this goal.
Ensuring a safe environment at our meetings
The American Ceramic Society is committed to ensuring that all ACerS events and activities are free from discrimination, harassment, and/or retaliation of any form. Learn more about the procedures that ACerS has in place to ensure a safe environment for all participants.
