The ACS’ Department of Diversity programs held their diversity reception at the Hilton New Orleans Riverside on Sunday, March 18th from 5-7pm. At the event there were seven students displaying their winning work from sister societies, The American Indian Science and Engineering Society (AISES), National Organization for the Professional Advancement of Black Chemists and Chemical Engineers (NOBCChE), and the Society of the Advancement of Chicanos/Hispanics in the Sciences (SACNAS). Attendance included members from all the diversity committees (chemists with disabilities, minority affairs, younger chemists and WCC of which included former members and current members). The Diversity Reception was a great event and great way to catch up with everyone as the meeting week began.
Now as we start the next ACS meeting, we hope to see you in Boston on Sunday August 19th, from 5 - 7 pm at the Sheraton Boston Hotel, Back Bay B.
