The Society for Political Methodology is an academic organization established to support and develop methodological and empirical tools for the study of political science. The open exchange of ideas, the freedom of thought and expression, and respectful scientific debate are central to the aims and goals of the Society for Political Methodology. These require a community and an environment that recognizes the inherent worth of every person and group, that fosters dignity, understanding, and mutual respect, and that embraces diversity. The Society is thus committed to sharing values of diversity and inclusion, and to fostering a diverse membership that’s inclusive of racial and ethnic background, disability status, religion, age, gender, color, gender identity, national origin, physical appearance, ancestry, sexual orientation, and socio-economic background. In order to foster diversity and inclusion, the Society seeks to provide forums for varied perspectives and an open exchange of ideas in an unbiased and non-prejudicial way. The values expressed in this statement are recognized and supported fully by the leadership of the Society at all levels.
