The American Physiological Society values diversity. APS is committed to creating an environment where individuals can exchange ideas and be safe, accepted, and respected. The Society’s dedication to education and to the understanding and betterment of life requires that we embrace diversity and create opportunities for empowerment of all. Embracing diversity means recognizing bias and cultural stereotypes and working to change mindsets. APS pledges to increase the participation and visibility of underrepresented groups. APS asks all members to take a stand for change; to commit to inclusion, respect, and equality; and to foster the open-mindedness that is the staple of discovery, creativity, and a better future for all.
