The AMS has experienced substantial growth and shifts in terms of its membership, since its inception in 1919. Over the past few decades, the Society has made great strides towards increased representation and higher status of women and underrepresented minorities in atmospheric science and related fields. As the AMS inches closer to its Centennial Celebration, it revisits the shifting characteristics of its membership in order to explore ways in which the Society must change to best serve the needs of its diverse membership and clarify the Society’s objectives in the next century. Led by the Board on Women and Minorities (BWM), the purpose of this Town Hall is to discuss ways in which the weather, water, and climate enterprise can reap the full benefits of an environment in which biases are minimized, and the principles of inclusion, diversity, and equity are interwoven seamlessly with scientific excellence.
