two people study a rock face in a cold landscapeWriting for Nature, Virginia Gewin (@VirginiaGewin) profiles geoscientists who are leading grassroots efforts to make their field more welcoming to researchers who have long been excluded from this area of science. Recent surveys have revealed that discrimination, harassment and exclusion are commonly encountered by geoscientists of color, women, those with disabilities and those who are LGBT. Gewin outlines the scale of the problem and then turns the mic over to five scientists who explain their initiatives in their own words. Photo: Csiddoway via Wikimedia Commons
