The EDI working group have now met and agreed that understanding our member’s current views on equality, diversity & inclusion within the GA is an important part of our initial knowledge gathering phase. So we will be conducting an EDI survey. If you do not receive an email from us within the next few days, please contact EDI@geologistsassociation.org.uk.

Against the background of recent race-related incidents worldwide, we would like to stress that the Geologists Association is an inclusive and welcoming community aimed at anybody interested in Geoscience. Current events highlight a longstanding issue in the geosciences and wider world. We are aware that we can and should do more. We are committed to improving diversity, inclusiveness and awareness within our society and are currently working on a number of proposals and initiatives to do this, which we plan to make public in the near future.

We have established an Equality, Diversity & Inclusion (EDI) working group working in close collaboration with the whole of council. 

An initial knowledge-gathering phase aimed at elucidating the current makeup of our membership, council and activities is now underway. The outcomes of this will be reported here.
