AGI Releases Community Consensus Statement Regarding Access and Inclusion of Geoscientists with Disabilities

The American Geosciences Institute's (AGI) is pleased to announce the release of a community consensus statement on access and inclusion of geoscientists with disabilities. This statement was inspired by the 2014 AGI Leadership Forum, which brought together the Executive Directors and Presidents of AGI's Member Societies to discuss the issue of access and inclusion of persons with disabilities in the geosciences.

Disability Consensus Statement

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.
