DEI Statement

The Developmental Neurotoxicology Society (DNTS) is fully committed to fostering principles of diversity, equity, and inclusivity (DEI) within our leadership, committees, and membership.

We are dedicated to providing a diverse, inclusive research community in which persons from different backgrounds are included, respected, and valued as they conduct and share research findings.

Diversity includes, but is not limited to, the categories of race, ethnicity, gender, age, socio-economic status, geographic origin, sexual orientation, disability, and religion.

We believe the principles of DEI are critically important to our society as multiple points of view, life experiences, ethnicities, cultures and belief systems are essential to research excellence.
