Everyone is welcome to become a SACNAS member, regardless of gender identity and expression, age, sexual orientation, physical or mental disability, race, national origin or ancestry, ethnicity, or religion (including the lack thereof or religious dress and grooming).

At SACNAS, diversity, equity, and inclusion are not abstract concepts or buzz words.They are values and the heartbeat of our programs. They are part of our DNA. We create space where STEM students and professionals from historically underrepresented populations can feel like they belong, can embrace their intersectional identities, and be empowered to bring their whole selves to STEM.
