Research Advancing Justice, Equity, and Inclusion in Ecology and STEM

A diversity of knowledge, experiences, and identities is essential for academic excellence, and a growing body of literature demonstrates that inclusion of diverse groups in science and other fields increases creativity, innovation, and productivity. These benefits emerge because diverse teams do not exclude the ideas of a large portion of the population, and thus the research or products produced by such teams can be more relevant to society. Yet, the scientific community does not reflect the demographics of the broader public. Many factors limit certain groups from participating in the scientific enterprise and addressing such barriers to the inclusion of diverse voices and perspectives has become a priority across STEM disciplines. Here, we share our growing body of research on advancing justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion in ecology and STEM, and discuss how our findings can be used to advocate for transformative and equitable institutional change.
