Dear colleagues,

We would like to call to your attention the following session at SSA 2022:
Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion in Seismology

Geosciences is one of the least diverse fields and will remain so if actions are not taken to address issues of racism, sexism, homophobia and inaccessibility. In this session, we welcome participants to present on efforts undertaken to improve the diversity, equity, and inclusion of seismology, geodesy and the broader geoscience community.

We particularly encourage contributions that will include specific issues, for example: best practices for partnerships with indigenous communities, workforce development including the recruitment and retention of individuals from underrepresented groups or issues related to field safety for underrepresented individuals. Recent developments to diversify, retain and provide career development for student and early career scientists in seismology, geodesy and the broader geoscience community will be highlighted.

The abstract submission deadline for SSA 2022 is Wednesday, January 12, 2022, at 5:00 PM PST. The SSA annual meeting will be held in-person from April 19–23, 2022 in Bellevue, Washington. Information about the annual meeting can be found here: https://meetings.seismosoc.org/.

We hope to see you there.
