The AGI statement on access and inclusion of geoscientists living with disabilities, written as a community document in 2015, serves to increase awareness of the challenges we face and the responsibilities we have as a community, and provides examples of ethical practices toward this group of individuals. A list of AGI's membership societies who have agreed to formally support this statement is provided. AGI strongly encourages all organizations to adopt, repost or refine this statement as they see fit for their own uses.
Science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) have relatively low percentages of bachelor degree recipients with physical disabilities. The average percentage of bachelor degree recipients with physical disabilities in all geosciences degree fields (6.45%) is on par with other STEM fields.
