Read. Listen. Discuss. Change

  • GeoreadingForEquity is a group of Geoscience graduate students, faculty, and researchers spanning multiple institutions who are passionate about improving equity and access in our field.

  • The GeoreadingForEquity website is intended to reduce redundancy by compiling resources we often share and be a repository of material including 1) the background of inequity in STEM higher ed, 2) particular Geoscience/Earth Science equity issues, and 3) strategies and resources for facilitating hard conversations. At this time, we hope you will add to the libraries and use these ideas to start conversations within your communities.
