ACS National Awards

Are you aware that the overall level of nominations has dropped for the national awards administered by the American Chemical Society? Additionally, it is a continuing dilemma that very few chemists with disabilities, minority chemists, or women chemists receive these national awards.

WCC, together with the Committee on Minority Affairs, the Committee on Chemists with Disabilities, the Younger Chemists Committee, and the Committee on Technician Affairs, are united in our efforts to be leaders in promoting diversity and inclusiveness within the ACS.
