Diversity & Inclusion
The geosciences are one of the least diverse fields in STEMM. Given the continued under-representation and exclusion of historically marginalized groups, I advocate for a more diverse and equitable geoscience community. To raise awareness and empower individuals, I have organized several workshops on topics such as bystander intervention, gender equality and discriminatory work environments at the departmental level and at larger conferences such as the EGU GA. I have also written articles and blog posts on equity topics in the geosciences (please see below) and I am an active member of the EGU Equality, Diversity and Inclusion committee.
