In support of the geoscience community’s attentiveness to developing a more inclusive culture that is resistant to harassment and discrimination, a collaborative effort to develop an anti-harassment/discrimination curriculum is underway. The curriculum is designed to be engaging and educative for undergraduate students, who may have little formal training in the terminology and concepts surrounding such topics, are likely to be unaware of policies and procedures regarding harassment, discrimination, and fraternization, are unlikely to know how to respond if they were to witness an incident of discrimination or harassment, and unlikely to know how to report incidents. Through this curriculum we seek to empower students, who might otherwise be vulnerable.
We also designed this curriculum to be a practical and approachable resource to inspire, encourage, and enable program facilitators, faculty, and other community leaders to engage with their students around these important topics to change our community’s culture.
Undergraduate students participating in science, technology, engineering, or math summer research opportunities, or participating in short duration field campaigns such as geoscience field camps, etc.
Following instruction, participants will be able to:
Use and Feedback Encouraged! This curriculum is intended to be a community resource. Therefore feedback, input, and the development of new supplemental modules from others are strongly encouraged! To coordinate versions, please send contributions and feedback to Michael Hubenthal at firstname.lastname@example.org and we'd love to add you to the contributor list!
