The Leading Culture Change through Professional Societies of Biology (BIO-LEAPS) program aims to advance diversity, equity and inclusion in the biological sciences broadly by leveraging the leadership, broad reach and unique ability of professional societies to create culture change in the life sciences. This program is designed to foster the necessary culture change within biology to move towards an equitable and inclusive culture that supports a diverse community of biologists that more fully reflects the demographic composition of the U.S. population. To achieve broad, sustained and innovative approaches for meaningful and lasting changes to occur, society leaders will need to enable and support the establishment and definition of new norms and practices in biology and to encourage engagement with experts in diversity, equity, and inclusion-related organizational change.
