The Committee for Inclusion and Diversity's, formerly the Minority Affairs Committee (MAC), charge is to increase the number of underrepresented biophysicists and enhance the visibility and career opportunities of existing underrepresented biophysicists, and to involve them in Society affairs. The Committee aims to foster a community for underrepresented biophysicists primarily through activities at the Annual Meeting and through the Summer Program. Outreach to young underrepresented students is achieved through participation at the scientific conferences for underrepresented students.
