In May 2013 the SEM Board of Directors and the Diversity Action Committee initiated four new programs to increase diversity within the Society. These programs include a Book Subvention Program; an Annual Meeting Subvention Program; a Mentoring Program; and a "Day of Ethnomusicology” Program, in which members of the Diversity Action Committee and the Education Section curate a day at the SEM Annual Meeting for a small group of students from a high school in the vicinity of the meeting site.

The Diversity Action Committee includes Deborah Wong (chair), Beverley Diamond, Kevin Fellezs, Victoria Levine, Sarah Morelli (Section on the Status of Women representative), Sister Marie Agatha Ozah (Crossroads Committee representative), Tes Slominski (Gender and Sexualities Task Force representative), and Tim Taylor. The Day of Ethnomusicology is coordinated by Patricia Shehan Campbell, Ramona Holmes (Education Section Chair), and Sarah J. Bartolome (Education Section Chair-Elect).

For more information and application guidelines, see SEM Diversity Action Committee Programs under "Resources" on the SEM website.
