Equality, Diversity, and Inclusion Committee

The EGU recognises the importance of equality, diversity, and inclusion as a crucial foundation for scientific research to address fundamental scientific questions and societally relevant environmental challenges. The increasing diversity of our membership in all its facets fosters collaborative research and discovery that benefits humanity and our planet.

Since its founding, the EGU has worked to ensure equitable treatment for everyone in our community with the goal of increasing our diversity at EGU events and on EGU committees and boards. The organisation is also working collaboratively with its sibling societies, including AGU, GSA, and JpGU, on issues of equality, diversity and inclusion.

In autumn 2018, the EGU Council established a working group whose aim is to promote and support equality, diversity, and inclusion in the Earth, planetary, and space sciences, with a focus on EGU activities. The group works closely with the EGU Council and Outreach Committee to implement activities that promote and demonstrate EGU’s commitment to equality, diversity and inclusion.
