About this Symposium:

In collaboration with the ASM Human Diversity Committee we have organized a session to focus on broadening participation in mammalogy.

This thematic session was organized as a chance to address some of the issues related to the lack of diversity in ASM and mammalogy. Topics for the presentations will center on the current state of human diversity in mammalogy, strategies and recommendations for supporting underserved populations, reports on existing broadening participation initiatives and successes by mammalogists and other biologists.
