Equality, diversity and inclusion

The EGU recognises the value of equality, diversity and inclusion. Within its membership, geographical origin, gender, scientific discipline and age balance are all factors contributing to the success of the Union. Since its creation, the EGU has maintained a genuine interest in ensuring fair treatment for all in its community. With sister organisations (e.g., AGU and GSA) also taking on equality, diversity and inclusion issues, the EGU has taken the opportunity to work collaboratively with sister societies on these important issues.

In autumn 2018, the EGU Council established the EGU Working Group on Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI), with the aim to promote and support equality, diversity and inclusion of opportunities in the Earth, planetary and space sciences, with particular focus on EGU activities. The group works closely with the EGU Outreach Committee and Council.

The EDI Working Group tasks are:

The working group is composed of a chair (with a three-year term renewable once) and members, including representatives from sister associations.
