MASNA’s Inclusivity and Diversity Statement
MASNA is dedicated to its continuous support of all communities within our diverse industry. We welcome everyone to our community regardless of their race, color, sexual orientation, gender identity, religion, age, national origin, physical ability, or political affiliation. MASNA stands against discrimination and strives to promote a safe and inclusive space for all members of the marine aquarium community.
Inclusion and diversity are vital for any organization, business, or industry to run successfully. Having an open and safe environment to interact and communicate is key for constituents to freely and safely engage with one another.
Diversity in our industry has enabled hobbyists, retailers, livestock suppliers, and product manufacturers alike to enjoy aquarium keeping, a passion which has brought individuals from different walks of life together.
Supporting an inclusive and diverse industry takes deliberate action by everyone. This support of inclusivity and diversity furthers MASNA’s goals to encourage the ethical growth of the marine aquarium hobby, not only by promoting best practices within the trade but also by embracing the diversity of those who share a love for keeping marine aquaria.
