Lepidopterists' Society Diversity Statement

The Lepidopterists’ Society is a society dedicated to furthering knowledge and awareness about Lepidoptera and is committed to ensuring diversity among our membership. We welcome into our Society and encourage the participation of all individuals who are interested in Lepidoptera regardless of age, education, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, race, ethnicity, cultural background, nationality, political affiliation, religion, physical or mental ability, professional status, attitude towards collecting in public spaces, and any other characteristics that make our members unique. We value a diverse community and believe it fosters a richer understanding of Lepidoptera.
