Presidential Membership Initiative

The Presidential Membership Initiative was launched in 2020 as a way for the Genetics Society of America to invite talented and creative individuals from diverse backgrounds into our community.

This program aims to support the career development of junior scientists from historically excluded populations by offering them a year of free membership and to take action to reverse a history of exclusion by cultivating the next generation of scientist-leaders. Each new member recruited through this mechanism will receive a year-long membership, with access to the Early Career Leadership Program and the GENETICS Peer Review Training Program, a subscription to GENETICS, and newly created networking opportunities and events within the program itself.
