Support for student-led diversity meetings

The College has formalized its support for student-led, diversity-oriented meetings and I would love your help getting the word out to your students.  Similar to the Student Travel and Meeting Fund, students (individually or as an organization) can apply for up to $1500 in support of meetings attended by CoEnv students where the central goals of the meeting include linking science to policy or real-world application, and advancing diversity and inclusion within the College, the University and relevant STEM fields.

LGBTQ+ in Earth/Environmental Sciences

In accordance with our (hopefully) constant efforts to improve the representation and experience of traditionally underrepresented groups in academia and the sciences, I’d like to invite any interested student (undergrad or grad), faculty or staff to a meeting to discuss the potential role of an organization for LGBTQ+ people in the Earth/environmental sciences here at UW. My goal is to get a regular group going at some point, and the purpose of this meeting would be to start defining what work needs to be done and how such an organization could be useful and effective.
