Diversity Statement

The ASA Council has approved the following diversity statement to guide the organization in seeking members to serve as candidates for election and appointees to committees:

"Much of the vitality of the ASA flows from its diverse membership. With this in mind, it is the policy of the ASA to include people of color, women, gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgendered persons, persons with disabilities, sociologists from smaller institutions or who work in government, business, or other applied settings, and international scholars in all of its programmatic activities and in the business of the Association. "
