Commitment to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
The Society of Toxicology (SOT) is committed to diversity, equity, and inclusiveness in all its activities, Committees, groups, and communities. Embracing diversity and optimizing inclusion maximizes engagement, creativity, and innovation among our members. SOT insists on a culture of respect, recognizes that words and actions matter, and commits to inclusiveness in all that we do. The Society is committed to expanding our efforts to achieve equity, eliminate racism and discrimination, and hold ourselves accountable to the high standards of the following core value: The Society asserts that to be a diverse, equitable, and inclusive organization, we must be considerate of many factors including, but not limited to, gender identity, race/ethnicity, employment sector, nationality and cultural background, geographic location, physical ability, and scientific expertise and perspective. Representation is important, but not sufficient to create a just and equitable environment. We are committed to supporting all members of our community and to a frequent review of Society policies and practices to ensure fairness.
