From hostile work environments to all white faculty rosters, polar research can be a pretty intimidating place at times. In the age of MeToo, what are polar agencies doing about it? Organized by the International Council Project Group on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion, the webinar will be a panel discussion on ways polar research funding agencies, academic unions, and universities are changing their policies to include more diverse voices within the membership, reduce incidents of harassment, and foster a culture of inclusion.
