The Diversity Committee is Seeking RSS Members to Participate in Two Workshops

Dear RSS members,

As part of our ongoing work, the Diversity Committee has made multiple recommendations to the RSS Executive Council to institute structural changes that promote equality and racial justice in the Society. One such recommendation is to develop a Diversity Mission Statement through a collaborative and deliberative process with RSS members. Therefore, the Diversity Committee would like to extend an invitation to RSS members to participate in two virtual workshops to develop a Diversity Mission Statement.

The first workshop will be held on Tuesday, September 29 at 11:00am-12:00pm (EST). The second workshop will be held on Friday, November 6 at 11:00am-12:00pm (EST). The first workshop will serve as a space for sharing initial ideas, while the second workshop will involve finalizing language for the statement.

We hope that these two workshops will provide an opportunity for RSS members to discuss ideas that are important to the Society. Particularly since the annual meeting was cancelled this year, we additionally hope that these workshops create a space for intellectual exchange among members.

More information will follow as the date for the first workshop approaches. In the meantime, please feel free to email Ian Carrillo if you have any questions ([email protected]).
