Diversity Committee

The GGE Diversity Committee is taking steps to address diversity in the field of Ecology by starting dialogues about diversity, providing diversity training, examining policies and procedures, encouraging effective outreach, and acting as a resource and source of support for all students. As leaders in the field, the GGE has the opportunity and the responsibility to address barriers to diversity within ecology.

The Diversity Committee will work to foster appreciation for the value of diversity in the GGE, to create and sustain a supportive and inclusive environment for all members, and to diversify our membership. Specific duties of the Diversity Committee will be to 1) support enrolled students by providing information resources and social events, 2) increase awareness of diversity issues and opportunities for outreach by providing student and faculty trainings and webpage management, and 3) identify methods to increase student and faculty diversity in the GGE and present these methods to the Executive Committee for consideration of adoption.
