Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Committee
Founded in October 2020, the Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Committee (DEI Committee) promots, advocates, and creates opportunities for greater equity, diversity and inclusiveness in the acoustics profession.
The Committee uses the following to define diversity, equity and inclusion:
- Diversity – Mix of different kinds of people. Identity markers, such as gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, race, color, religion, national origin, age, and disability.
- Equity – Means a condition is level and impartial. Acknowledging an uneven playing field, recognizing inherent power differentials and disparate treatment based on identity.
- Inclusion – Creates an environment in which everyone is able to equally contribute to discussions and decision-making and have the ability to help change systems
