Inclusive and Equitable Science

Nurturing inclusive communities of research and practice

Innovative and equitable solutions to global change demand inclusive approaches to producing, sharing, and using science. AGCI works to broaden participation, create inclusive spaces, amplify voices, and engage in equitable research across communities of research and practice.

Organizing Inclusive Scientific Meetings

Scientific meetings are an essential part of the global scientific enterprise. Scientists rely on them to develop the networks and knowledge needed to build a career in science. But some members of the scientific community are left out, feel isolated in meetings, or encounter barriers to full participation. AGCI partnered with 500 Women Scientists and the Earth Science Women’s Network to develop this guide for fostering a culture of inclusion for scientific meetings and conferences. A revised and expanded version will be available in late 2022.

Combating Racial Bias in STEMM

This short explainer video, co-written and produced with MIT’s Kuheli Dutt, illustrates how racial bias creates hostile work spaces in STEMM (science, technology, engineering, mathematics, and medicine) fields, and what scientists can do to overcome racial bias to create inclusive spaces and authentic partnerships.

AGCI’s Commitment to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

In December 2017, AGCI’s Board of Directors adopted our Commitment to Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion. We recognize the role that AGCI can play in improving diversity, equity, and inclusion within the sciences, and this statement of commitment serves as a foundation for our actions as we embrace that role. We see this as an ongoing process and dialogue, and welcome feedback on how we can continue to improve our practices.
