Statement on AAPG’s Professional Standards (sent to Members on June 10, 2020)

AAPG is a global organization that comprises a diverse, multi-racial, multi-cultural group of professionals and students, mainly connected by our love of the geosciences and respect for our profession.

Although AAPG’s primary purpose is to advance the geosciences, our Code of Ethics makes it clear that “the privilege of professional practice requires professional morality and professional responsibility.” Support for equality, diversity and inclusion and the rights of the individual are key elements of this. We welcome and support Black colleagues and oppose racism of any kind.

AAPG has a history of taking actions and promoting programs that express our key values and professionalism. These include global conferences, educational programs, AAPG Region activities, the Women’s Network (previously PROWESS) and many worldwide student activities. AAPG’s global IBA program emphasizes and demonstrates that diversity of thought and experience produces the most effective teamwork.

AAPG remains committed to promoting scientific and professional engagement that enhances and encourages diversity and inclusivity, and rejects discrimination.
