The Fourth Symposium on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion is sponsored by the American Meteorological Society. The American Meteorological Society is committed to and benefits from the full and equitable participation of a diverse community in its membership, in its activities, and in the audiences that it serves. The advancement of the AMS mission is dependent on its ability to have a professional membership that is fully representative of societal demographics in which all members are welcomed, valued, and affirmed. 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 and ability to thrive. It is essential for the advancement of the weather, water, and climate enterprise that diversity, equity, and inclusion are integrated into how we work, with whom we work, and which challenges we tackle.
