The ACS CMA mission is to advance diversity and inclusion in ACS and the broader chemistry enterprise.

This mission is accomplished through our goals:

  • Develop and sustain an ongoing programmatic presence on-line and at ACS national and regional meetings.
  • Advocate for increased recognition of racially and ethnically underrepresented chemical scientists for various ACS awards.
  • Collect and disseminate information on racially and ethnically underrepresented chemical practitioners to targeted stakeholders.

What do we do?

  • Promote the recognition of the professional accomplishments of minorities
  • Attract minority students to the profession
  • Identify minority-friendly educational institutions and businesses
  • Work for the increased participation of minority chemistry professionals in the Society at all levels
  • Provide mentoring to minority students
  • Compile best practices for recruitment, retention, career development, and evaluation of programs for the advancement of minorities
  • And much much more!
