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, this year we have included a demographics research section in the registration process, which will help us improve efforts to foster diversity at BBM, and a new scholarship for minorities. 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.
