Diversity - Equity - Inclusion working group (DEI)

Diversity, Equity and Inclusion is a matter for all!

The DEI group is interested and dedicated to raise awareness on the benefits that diversity, equity and inclusion bring for scientific advancement, especially within our geosciences community.

We want students and scientists from all backgrounds to feel welcome, empowered, and capable of succeeding in their academic career.

We foster gender equity among undergraduate students with the aim of enlarging their choice of study fields and overcoming horizontal gender segregation.

Do you feel bullied or harassed? Then you can get in touch with a Councelling service.

For any information, comments, ideas or suggestions, contact: dei@geo.unibe.ch. The request is also possible anonymously.

Every IfG member is welcome to join the group.

Send a request to subscribe the mailing list to: dei@geo.unibe.ch 


Achieving Gender Equality and Diversity in the Natural Sciences

DEI Group's recommendation: Whilst many women study Natural Sciences, they are still widely under-represented compared to men in advanced and leading positions. Visit the Platform Biology (SCNAT) webinars to learn more about causes and consequences and develop solutions for greater diversity in science and research.
