AMS advances atmospheric and related sciences, technologies, applications, and services for the benefit of society. We work with our members to contribute to a positive future for all people, for nature, and for the Earth – a future that offers everyone the opportunity to thrive. In order to achieve this goal, diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) must be a thread into who we are, how we work, who we work with, and which challenges we tackle.
We encourage submissions to the Symposium on DEI that are cross-cutting between DEI, belongingness, and accessibility (DEIBA) and the geophysical sciences. The intent is to create joint sessions between underrepresented communities and the geophysical processes that impact them. As examples, AMS 2020 included sessions such as Women in Tropical Meteorology and Translating Weather into the Spanish Language.
Examples of topic areas are:
