Draft Diversity and Inclusion Statement
The Teratology Society values the principles of diversity, inclusivity, and equity, and embraces all aspects of these principles within its leadership, committees, and membership. We encourage diversity and inclusivity in scientific learning and practice based on, but not limited to, age, physical ability, ethnicity, geography, language, religion, sex, gender identity and expression, socio-economic status, segment of the scientific community, and any other visible or non-visible differences with equitable treatment of all.
