The Protein Society DEI Statement

Protein science is an integrative and inclusive endeavor that utilizes concepts and methods from a diverse array of disciplines to strive for a more complete understanding of the role that proteins play in biological structure and function across many levels. As a membership-based society and leader in its field, The Protein Society values and is committed to diversity, equity, and inclusion in all aspects of its societal endeavors. We, therefore, strive to provide a safe and supportive environment for all of our constituents, where everyone is treated with respect and is encouraged to contribute their unique strengths and abilities to our shared mission. We are committed to acting on these principles for the betterment of the field of protein science and all activities with which The Protein Society is engaged.
