On the recommendation of the 2016 APS LGBT Climate in Physics report, an organizing committee was created to develop a petition and proposal to Council to approve the creation of an APS Forum on Diversity and Inclusion (FDI). The Forum was established by unanimous approval of the APS Council of Representatives in November 2019, with strong support from the APS Committee on Minorities in Physics (COM), the Committee on the Status of Women in Physics (CSWP), the APS Ethics Committee, the Forum on Education (FEd), the Forum on Outreach and Engaging the Public (FOEP), and the Forum on Graduate Student Affairs (FGSA).
The objective of the Forum on Diversity and Inclusion is to support the mission of the APS by:
FDI will encourage aligned APS Units to partner with the larger APS membership to further coordinate and advance the Unit’s work.
Nominees and award and office holders are expected to meet standards of professional conduct and integrity as described in the APS Ethics Guidelines. Violations of these standards may disqualify people from consideration or lead to revocation of honors or removal from office.
