Building partnerships to catalyze cultural change in the geosciences

Abstract: The ADVANCEGeo Partnership, funded by a US National Science Foundation ADVANCE award, builds successful collaborations among the Earth Science Women’s Network, Association for Women Geoscientists, and the American Geophysical Union to catalyze policy and cultural change in the geosciences. The program’s main interventions are a community-based model for bystander intervention education, informed by a feminist ethics of care, to tackle systemic exclusionary behaviors and the promotion of ethical codes that identify harassment, bullying and discrimination as scientific misconduct. The program’s intersectional framework addresses persistent trends in the earth and environmental sciences and responds to unique challenges of disciplines with field training components. Here I will describe some of the work of ADVANCEGeo, including findings from a workplace climate survey of the geosciences, and describe opportunities for transforming cultural change through partnerships.

ADVANCEGeo is Empowering (geo)scientists to transform workplace climate

The Earth Science Women’s Network, Association for Women Geoscientists and the American Geophysical Union are partnering to address the problem of sexual and other types of harassment and other exclusionary behaviors, such as bullying, discrimination and identity-based aggressions, that lead to hostile working and learning environments in the earth, space and environmental sciences with a four-year, $1.1 million grant from the National Science Foundation ADVANCE program. A primary goal of the project is to improve workplace climate conditions by developing bystander intervention education for department heads, chairs, faculty and grad students to appropriately respond to and prevent harassment, bullying and other exclusionary behaviors in research environments.


We hope to e-see you on March 28th at 2000 UTC (4pm ET/3pm CT/2pm MT/1pm PT)!
