ACS Division of Professional Relations: A home for all chemists

Who are we?

Our members are a diverse group, representing all areas of chemistry and all types of chemical professionals including minorities, women, international chemists, younger chemists, academics, governmental, and industrial chemists, both employed and unemployed.

We believe in the power of diversity, inclusion, and respect.

The Division of Professional Relations is committed to working, within the ACS and externally, to advocate for inclusion and equity for chemists, particularly our BIPOC colleagues who continue to face systemic racism.

We recently hosted an open dialogue on Diversity, Inclusion, and Respect, and will be sharing resources and follow up actions on our blog. In the meantime, please submit any feedback or thoughts you might have on tangible ways the ACS can make a difference:
