AGU Early Career Improving Field Work Culture Discussion Sign-up
Conducting field work can be a once-in-a-lifetime, formative experience for students and early career researchers. Unfortunately, it is also where verbal and physical harassment and discrimination are experienced, particularly by more junior scientists, at startingly high rates (Clancy et al. 2014). Still, rising awareness of these issues is leading to a growth in resources outlining meaningful steps to prevent such behavior in the field. For these reasons, the AGU Atmospheric Science Early Career Committee and Hydrology Section Student Subcommittee will hold an informal discussion, from 4:30-5:30pm EST on Tuesday, June 29, about how to improve fieldwork culture. We will introduce tools and steps that the individual can take to be active allies during field campaigns, and practice applying those tools to real-life scenarios that have occurred in the field. The information and experiences shared in this webinar will be synthesized as part of a white paper examining the state of justice, equity, diversity and inclusion for early career atmospheric scientists.
