The Society for Marine Mammalogy (SMM) has recently created an ad hoc Committee on Diversity and Inclusion to investigate ways the SMM can better serve the marine mammalogy community by enhancing the diversity of scientists in the field. The first step of the committee is to better understand the make-up of the field and to solicit ideas of ways that SMM can help make a more diverse and inclusive community. This survey is completely anonymous and will be used to inform the SMM as it moves forward in creating a more inclusive and diverse society. There are 17 questions and it should take less than three minutes to complete. Even if you are not currently a member of SMM, please feel free to fill out the survey. Our intent is to obtain as comprehensive a view of the field as possible.
Please fill out the survey by December 16, 2018.
Thank you for your participation!
