Ongoing Initiatives

We have several ongoing initiatives at the Society and Annual Meeting

Accessibility & Inclusivity at the Annual Meetings

The AMS Annual Meeting provides networking opportunities for women and historically underrepresented identities, including the annual Women in Atmospheric Sciences Luncheon and the Coriolis and Colour of Weather receptions. In 2022, the Annual Meeting hosted the Third Symposium on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion and conducted a survey to review our accessibility practices and policies. The Fourth Symposium on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion will be held in 2023 in Denver.  For more information on Safety and Inclusivity as well as Accessibility at the Annual Meeting please visit our website.

AMS recently conducted an Equity Assessment (EA) process to allow the organization to fully integrate equity, inclusion, and justice (EIJ) into its programmatic activities and policies, foster a sense of belonging for its membership, and guide the activities of the Society over the short- and long-term.
