URGE has four primary objectives. They are to:
- Deepen the Geoscience community’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 with Geoscience workplaces
