ERIM 2023 – Diversity & Inclusion Track

ERIM 2023 – Diversity & Inclusion Track

The Europlanet Society is committed to building a diverse, inclusive planetary science community in Europe and to ensuring that individuals within that community experience equal opportunity, regardless of gender, disability, ethnic origin, religion or belief, sexual orientation, marital status, age, nationality or socioeconomic background.

The Europlanet Diversity Committee acts as a strategic task force to advise, coordinate and champion activities across the Europlanet Society that further the Society’s commitment to equality, diversity and inclusivity.

The Widening Participation Task of Europlanet 2024 RI aims to proactively raise awareness and facilitate cooperation with individuals and institutions from under-represented states through workshops and meetings.

ERIM 2023 is an opportunity to bring groups together to share best practice, evaluate the current status, identify barriers to inclusion, discuss wishlists and priorities, and define a clear roadmap for creating a more diverse and inclusive Europlanet Community in the next decades.
