The Protein Society is committed to taking concrete actions to end racism in science by outlining a plan of action that includes investments in outreach, mentoring, and inclusion initiatives that can help address inequities and contribute to meaningful and sustained change.
“We want to welcome all and make a space for full participation in our society that reflects the broader society. At TPS, we want everyone to bring their whole selves to pursuing the science we all love.” -Bil Clemons, Caltech, Chair of the TPS DEI Committee
