IAPG is supporting partner of the EDIG project by iCRAG

The iCRAG - Irish Centre for Research in Applied Geosciences launched the ​Equality, Diversity, and Inclusion in Geoscience (EDIG) project.

The IAPG is an official supporting partner of this project.

The Equality, Diversity, and Inclusion in Geoscience (EDIG) project was started by a group of geoscientists who are working together to better understand the impact of prejudice, inequity, sexism, bias, exclusion, and discrimination within the larger geoscience community. EDIG is carrying out a unique survey on these issues and will directly use the results to plan an online conference later this year (details TBC), bringing together a diverse range of guest speakers. The conference will help start a conversation and prompt progressive action, by having open discussions about the experiences of discriminated groups within the geoscience sector. EDIG's aim is to look at newly emerging issues and address those that are stubbornly persistent in the geoscience sector. Through listening and learning, EDIG intends to stimulate new ideas and innovative approaches to tackling systemic inequalities.
