Gender equity and harassment
The geosciences are still one of the least diverse scientific disciplines, in part, due to the persistence of hostile environments towards women and LGBTQ+ individuals. In recent years, more professional organizations, including the National Science Foundation, have highlighted the need to move to a more inclusive research culture by addressing stereotypes and barriers linked to gender identities.
