Polar Policy: How Polar Agencies Are Changing their Policies to be More Inclusive
From hostile work environments to all white faculty rosters, polar research can be a pretty intimidating place at times. In the age of MeToo, what are polar agencies doing about it? Find out at the APECS webinar "Polar Policy: How Polar Agencies Are Changing their Policies to be More Inclusive" on February 26th at 16:30-18:00 GMT. Organized by the International Council Project Group on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion, the webinar will be a panel discussion on ways polar research funding agencies, academic unions, and universities are changing their policies to include more diverse voices within the membership, reduce incidents of harassment, and foster a culture of inclusion. The panel discussion will include Chandrika Nath, the executive director of the Scientific Committee on Antarctic Research, Claudia Alves de Jesus Rydin, chairwomen of the European Geophysical Union Diversity and Equity Working Group, and Agnieszka Kruszewska, executive committee member of the Council of Managers of National Antarctic Programs.
