Association for Consumer Research

Benefits of Membership

We believe the richest understanding of consumer behavior emerges from a tapestry of perspectives, backgrounds, and experiences. That’s why we actively cultivate an environment where everyone feels welcomed, valued, and empowered to contribute. From our dedicated Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (EDI) Champion to our commitment to diverse conference programming and inclusive scholarship opportunities, we champion equitable access and representation across all facets of the organization. We celebrate the unique voices and talents of our members, knowing that it’s through collaborative exploration and open dialogue that we truly illuminate the intricate dance of consumer choice. Join us in building a stronger, more vibrant ecosystem of consumer research, where every voice resonates and contributes to a deeper understanding of the human experience.
