Equity, Diversity, and Inclusivity Committee

The EPS Department is committed to fostering an inclusive environment where all members can thrive. The Equity, Diversity, and Inclusivity (EDI) Committee is working to advance initiatives both in the department and in the broader scientific community. Below you will find links to our initiatives and relevant resources.

Diversity Initiatives

The EPS Department is currently working on the following equity, diversity, and inclusivity (EDI) initiatives. If you would like further information on any of these, please contact sabine@jhu.edu.

Codes of Conduct for Field and Conference Experiences

We are developing codes of conduct for field experiences and conference experiences. The purpose is to ensure that all department members know of their rights, resources, and responsibilities when representing JHU at these events. The codes of conduct also provide pathways for reporting concerns and obtaining support if issues arise. Versions of these documents will be posted once they are finalized.
