IAU EC WG on Astronomy for Equity and Inclusion sub-groups (subWGs)

The IAU EC WG on Astronomy for Equity and Inclusion sub-groups are subsets of the working group created to focus, both discussions and actions, on the different fields across inclusion.

  • Intend to build upon specific networks within IAU and bring in external expertise, with their members steering and informing the WGs global actions.
  • Identify specific needs in the community and draft courses of action and guidelines, aligned with both the IAU Strategic Plan 2020-2030 and the Springboard of Action leveraging all dimensions of inclusion on research, outreach, education and development.
  • Are in contact and close collaboration with each other through email, basecamp or online meetings, accessing the intersectionality aspects inherent to the field, avoiding duplication of the efforts carried.

We would like to invite all of you to join one or more of the subWGs according to your particular interests and expertise. Please write directly to the coordinator(s) of the group(s) you wish to join. Every coordinator will decide which is the best way for the group to communicate and work according to the characteristics of each particular group.

The subWGs are the following:
