Shownotes

Did you know that the Human Factors and Ergonomics Society furthers their diversity, equity, and inclusion initiatives through Affinity Groups that create opportunities for community, mentoring, and support based on areas of collective identity?

These groups aim to challenge the Human Factors and Ergonomics industry while advancing science to combat long standing social disparities. One such group is The LGBTQ+ Affinity Group which serves members of the society that identify as as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and gender non-conforming, as well as allies and supporters.

This HFES Affinity Group has three objectives: To promote diversity, equity, and inclusion for the Society’s queer community, to foster this community through welcoming events, and to better our world through outreach activities with HFES’ partners and associated institutions. At no cost, any interested person, regardless of membership level may participate in an affinity group. If you are interested in joining or forming a new Affinity Group you may find more information at hfes.org.
