In light of Thursday’s Supreme Court ruling on affirmative action, the American Meteorological Society (AMS) reaffirms our commitment to equity, inclusion, and justice (EIJ). The AMS is a global community whose mission is to advance weather, water, and climate science and services for the benefit of society. As such, EIJ is at the core of AMS’s mission, essential to developing the workforce needed to tackle the complex and multi-faceted problems of our time, and central to the advancement of humanity and the human experience. Diversity in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) education improves science and the quality of services the public receives. Therefore, the American Meteorological Society champions equity, inclusion, and justice and will continue to do so to the greatest extent possible.
