Other Society Task Groups
Diversity Equity and Inclusion Task Group
Recognizing that discrimination, racism and other forms of structural inequality are widespread issues in science, the Metabolomics Society is committed to increasing diversity in our field by implementing diversity and inclusion into our activities and organizational culture. Productive, innovative and impactful scientific communities depend on a rich diversity of perspectives, backgrounds and experiences. The DEI Task Group will focus on further cultivating a community where all members feel welcome and secure and that all voices are heard and respected. We aim to develop and promote strategies and best practices within the realms of racial, social, sexual and gender diversity. Our strategy will facilitate the Society’s mission to foster and sustain a diverse, equitable and inclusive metabolomics community.
International Affiliations Task Group
The IATG facilitates contacts between the Society and regional networks across the globe. Our main role is acting as a central contact point for potential new affiliates to help with their organisation and talk through affiliation with the Society. We also organise a regional get together each international meeting and have helped with the organisation of super-networks (e.g. the pan-Pacific meeting, the European networks, etc).

Industry Engagement Task Group
The IETG strives to connect corporations that market to the metabolomics community to the membership and activities of the Metabolomics Society. In addition, members of the Society who are employed in corporate settings are encouraged to interact on their concerns and interests through the IETG. Since IETG values the importance of communication, we have recently developed a newsletter full of recent information and events. Please review the newsletters by clicking the link for each issue.
Society Strategy Task Group
The Society Strategy Task Group aims to develop evidence-based strategic recommendations for presentation to the Society Board of Directors. The strategic recommendations are intended to promote priority setting for the Society, establish agreement around intended outcomes, and assure the Society is working toward common goals.
