Association of Polar Early Career Scientists


In December 2023, the APECS Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) Project Group, in collaboration with the Scientific Committee on Antarctic Research (SCAR) EDI Action Group and Thrive Lifeline, embarked on a journey to create a more diverse, equitable and inclusive (DEI) mindset and decision-making capability in our organizations leadership bodies. The DEI workshops focused on eroding intrinsic biases, identifying microaggressions, and how to intervene as a bystanding observer effectively and safely. These workshops were organized and held online. 

Because of the importance of these topics to Early Career Researchers (ECRs), and the scientific community as a whole, three PDF resources, each focusing on the three different topics covered during these workshops, were produced and are now publically available on the APECS Website. Besides these PDF resources, several videos are being edited with the content of the workshops, which will also be available to everyone in the coming weeks. Stay tuned, and until then, take a look at the PDF resources:
