ACBS Diversity Award

The ACBS Awards Committee invites nominations and applications to this annual award focused on diversity, equity, and inclusion. This Diversity Award will be given to one qualifying ACBS member each year who disseminates CBS work aimed at advancing diversity, equity, and inclusion. Specifically, the award focuses on dissemination of work across categories including gender, race, ethnicity, language, income, sexual/gender identity, religion, neurodiversity, and disability. This work can be disseminated through research publications, teaching, clinical work, and/or community service.


1. Candidates must be a member of ACBS.
2. Candidates should provide the name of an individual who would be willing to complete a brief reference form, such as a collaborator, co-author, or member of the community in which the work is disseminated. (Individuals who nominate another person must complete the reference.)

Nominations/applications will be accepted annually between 15 August and 30 September, with the awardee determined by the ACBS Awards Committee with the assistance of the Diversity Equity and Inclusion Committee. Award recipients will receive a certificate and the option of either:
