The Research Society on Alcoholism (RSA) Diversity Committee has three primary aims: (1) to enhance diversity of the membership of the Research Society on Alcoholism (RSA) and foster a welcoming and inclusive climate at RSA; (2) to increase the breadth of research presented at the Annual Meeting of relevance to population diversity; (3) to foster the careers of under-represented members. The term diversity includes, but is not to be limited to: sex, age, ethnicity, race, gender identity, sexual orientation, religion, nationality, social class, and ability.

Members of the Committee are expected to attend the annual RSA conference, attend the Diversity Committee meeting at the conference, and assist with activities that assess and promote diversity at the annual meeting, including collaboration with other RSA Committees as appropriate to facilitate events in support of the Diversity Committee’s mission.
