Leadership & Diversity Awards

ACSM is committed to diversity. ACSM values and seeks diverse and inclusive participation within the fields of exercise science and sports medicine. It promotes expanded diversity in membership, involvement and access to leadership. Diversity within ACSM creates a working and learning atmosphere that encourages varied perspectives and an open exchange of ideas. ACSM will review programming annually to best determine how to maintain diversity initiatives. 

ACSM Leadership & Diversity Training Program
The purpose of the program is to mentor and retain minority members by offering three different levels that require ACSM membership, involvement in ACSM meetings (regional and national) and committees, and pursuit of ACSM professional presentations, publications and fellowship. The program also provides mentors to participants at each level and provides participants with funding to perform the necessary steps to remain involved with ACSM from student member to ACSM Fellowship. The deadline for the applications is February 1, 2016. If you have questions, click here.
