The Inclusive Diversity Committee serves as a focal point for interaction among underrepresented environmental toxicologists and chemists in North America with emphasis on outreach to these groups. SETAC is dedicated to promoting diversity among its members
and welcomes and encourages participation from all, regardless of race, ethnicity, gender identity, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, religion, age, national origin, or physical or mental differences.
While SETAC North America has made great strides in the inclusion of those from diverse backgrounds, we feel there is a large need to have a committee focused on helping to further cultivate a society built on mutual respect, tolerance, encouragement,
mentorship and diversity in all levels and areas of societal activity, including but not limited to programming, membership, leadership, committees, staff, etc. We believe a group such as this will help not only change the collective demographic of
SETAC North America but will also foster a new era of scientific collaborations with those who may not have normally been involved or afforded such opportunities.

If you are a creative artist or know of one, the ID committee needs your help. We are seeking a logo to visually represent the group. This logo will be used on official social media accounts, merchandise sold for fundraising purposes and promotional materials (fliers, posters, etc). The winning artist will receive credit for their work and a SETAC T-shirt, SETAC mug and $25.00 gift card.
Download the flyer with more information. When you start designing the logo, please keep the SETAC logo and trademark guidelines in mind.
