Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

The Boston Bacterial Meeting (BBM) is deeply committed to supporting a diverse and inclusive community of bacteriologists. We encourage scientists of all backgrounds, including race, ethnicity, age, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, religion/faith, education, socio-economic status, ability, national origin, citizen status, military status, and political affiliation.

To uphold our vision to maintain and promote a culture of equity and inclusion, we have included a demographics research section in the registration process, which will help us improve efforts to foster diversity at BBM. We also offer a number of scholarships for underrepresented minorities in biomedical sciences. More information can be found on the registration page.

For BBM attendees who expect to need a lactation room during the conference, there are several available in the area through Harvard.  To get more information and arrange access please contact worklife@harvard.edu

We hope to create diversity, equity, and inclusion programming at BBM in future years to further our mission to provide a welcoming conference experience for all BBM attendees.
