Created to Advise the Nation
The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine values diversity in our members, volunteers, and staff and strives for a culture of equity and inclusion in our workplace and programmatic activities. Convening a diverse community to exchange ideas and perspectives enhances the quality of our work and increases our relevance as advisers to the nation regarding the most complex issues facing the nation and the world. To promote diversity and inclusion in the fields of science, engineering, and medicine, we are committed to increasing the diversity of the National Academies' staff, members, and volunteers to reflect the populations we serve. We pledge to cultivate an environment and culture that promotes inclusion and values respectful participation of all individuals who help advance the mission of our organization.
