About URGE


URGE has four primary objectives. They are to:

  • Deepen the Geoscience communityā€™s knowledge of the effects of racism on the participation and retention of People of Color in the discipline
  • Draw on existing literature, expert opinions, and personal experiences to develop anti-racist policies and resources
  • Share, discuss, and modify anti-racist policies and resources within a dynamic community network and on a national stage
  • Implement and assess anti-racist policies and resources within Geoscience workplaces
