    Although this has a July dateline, I recently read this article and would like to hear what institutions are doing to change the ways we are doing research and sharing the findings.

    A student recently forwarded me this editorial in Science about the importance of self-determination by Indigenous Peoples in all the discussion about climate adaptation and mitigation research. Given that Indigenous Peoples have done the least to cause climate change and yet face some of the worst consequences, the article makes an important case for the work non-Indigenous scholars have to do for a more equitable system.

    Ever wondered how you can support Black academics? Be part of the solution and check out this article linked below published in Nature Reviews.

    That’s awesome this article! Nothing better than reading and being well-informed to combat anti-Black racism in academic institutions.

    Check out the report linked below by Yale and George Mason University which states that although POC are more impacted by climate change they were more invested in mitigating climate change, even if it meant they would have higher taxes.

    Which racial/ethnic groups care most about climate change?

    It’s Black History Month. Check out this article about the relationship African societies have with the ocean and the history of libraries. Centuries of trafficking forced African societies to create mental libraries filled with tradition and culture passed down through word of mouth.

    Hi all, after listening to the seminar today, I wanted to share an article I just found (and also trying to become more active, rather than being passive). Apparently there is not only a #GenderPayGap, but also a #CoronaPublicationGap. https://www.universityaffairs.ca/news/news-article/covid-19-is-still-exacerbating-the-gender-gap-in-academia/
    Personally, I can relate to that, having a partner in science and kids as well.
    I have always wondered how this gap (even before COVID) can be compensated/accommodated. I’d like to hear your thoughts.

    Hi all,
    here a statement from the German Max Planck Society, that there may be a bias on how power abuse is reported based on gender:

    Hi Maximilian: am responding to your question/comment about Corona publication gap – while I don’t have any systemic solutions, personally, I remind myself and members of selection committees/search committees that I have been serving on about this when discussing candidates. It is complicated because it would appear that some candidates became more productive (perhaps because of the unhealthy pressure to do so) while others less and so comparing across could be fraught. But perhaps a slightly good news take away is that being aware of this challenge can/has resulted in a richer conversation about the candidate as a whole and so being purposeful is one potential answer.

    Recently I’ve been reading a lot of stories about people leaving academia because of the lack of inclusion. The following article is not about STEM specifically, but about the intersection of gender and ethnicity in academia. Check it the article by Dounia Bourabain and tell me your thoughts!

    Although this article is based on the field of ecology and evolutionary biology, it parallels the field of marine science in terms of demographics. Check out this article linked below titled “Why are there so few ethnic minorities in ecology and evolutionary biology? Challenges to inclusion and the role of sense of belonging”

    Underserved communities run into various barriers in the field of geosciences. One of those barriers is hostile climates. This article highlights the importance of inclusion in geosciences and ways to combat hostile climates.
