Diversity Statement

The Society for the Study of Evolution (SSE) is dedicated to promoting a broader understanding of evolutionary biology and its related subfields. We encourage the professional development of our members and support increasing participation and access. At the scientific core of evolutionary biology is a value for and appreciation of biological diversity. Accordingly, we welcome, support, and celebrate the diversity of our members. We are sensitive to the ways that diversity changes and grows in modern society and acknowledge that diversity principles change through time. As a professional society we promote equity, inclusion, and diversity at all levels, and we encourage participation by individuals of all groups. We encourage an inclusive, supportive, and impartial workspace free from discrimination, bigotry, sexual harassment, or violence of any kind. Finally, we strive to facilitate the effective communication of evolutionary principles to the public to foster a broader understanding of evolutionary biology, biological diversity, and cultural inclusion.
