The Diversity Committee shall work to engage a broader and more diverse community of environmental professionals by advocating for the inclusion of multiple voices that represent perspectives and expertise from various backgrounds and identities, including but not limited to: abilities, academic discipline, age, career, culture, ethnicity, gender, gender identity/expression, geographic location, language, nationality, political beliefs, position within organization, race, religion, sexual orientation, sex, and/or socio-economic status. The Diversity Committee shall work in partnership with other AESS committees and the AESS Board of Directors to accomplish its purpose, which is aligned with AESS’ overall mission.

The Diversity Committee shall pursue its work with the understanding that a diverse membership and leadership will help make AESS (“[the] Corporation”) a stronger organization more likely to attract future leaders in the environmental field. Diverse groups of people with varied perspectives are more successful at solving complex problems, such as the ‘wicked’ socio-ecological problems that confront society.
