Since its founding in 1848, AAAS was always open to all. With the movement for Civil Rights in the1960’s and women's rights in the early 1970’s, the organization undertook programs and adopted policies to more actively promote diversity and inclusion in STEM.  AAAS has also enjoyed diversity in its governance – including that forty percent of AAAS presidents have been women.  This presentation will provide a brief overview of AAAS efforts, past, present and future, to support diversity, inclusion, and excellence in science.
