AGU is excited to receive the 2021 Power of A award, having previously won two Power of A awards in 2020 for its Centennial programs and in 2019 for the Thriving Earth Exchange.
Diversity, equity and inclusionArticles
On 28 July 2021, AGU submitted comments to the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP)’s Request for Information to Improve Federal Scientific Integrity Policies.
Today, I am excited to announce the release of two more special podcast episodes exploring allyship and diversity, equity and inclusion featuring conversations with Billy Williams, AGU executive vice president of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion and Lisa White, director of education and outreach at the Museum of Paleontology at the University of California, Berkeley, chair of AGU’s diversity and inclusion advisory committee and an Eos science advisor.
AGU is pleased to announce an update to its corrections policy to allow for more flexibility around author name changes in our publications to better align with our values of diversity, equity and inclusion.
Billy Williams has been promoted to Executive Vice President of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion.
In our special “Third Pod from the Sun” episode, featuring AGU Vice President of Meetings Lauren Parr and AGU Vice President of Science Policy and Government Relations Lexi Shultz, we talk about what is AGU, as an organization, doing to serve as an ally when it comes to our meetings and public policy.
The issues that this team will be addressing – from COVID-19 to the climate crisis to removing systemic racism – are paramount to re-establishing a civil society that values science and facts. AGU’s community is ready to assist to foster a safe and healthy planet for all.
