Committee on Diversity Mission Statement
Sigma Xi, The Scientific Research Society, is committed to a diversification of its membership, its programs, and representation within the scientific and engineering research community. It is the policy of Sigma Xi to remove the barriers which prevent the full participation of under-represented groups in scientific and engineering professions. The mission of the Committee on Diversity is to promote inclusiveness within the Society by:
- collaborating with other standing committees in the Society to help diversify Society membership, leadership, and programs,
- educating all members of the Society with regard to policies and practices that reinforce diversity within Sigma Xi,
- collaborating with other professional societies to promote the diversification of the scientific and engineering community, and
- providing resources needed to increase participation of under-represented groups in science and engineering.
