Proud to be a Chemist: About You

The American Chemical Society (ACS) is actively committed to cultivating a diverse, equitable, inclusive, and respectful community of chemistry professionals. We encourage inclusivity and oppose discrimination in scientific learning and practice based on—but not limited to—race, religion, country or ethnic origin, country of residence, citizenship, language, political opinion, sex, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, disability, age, economic status and educational attainment.
