The Integrity, Diversity and Equity (IDE) Working Group: Progress Report and Discussions for Ensuring Equity and Justice Within the CSA
Organizer: Daniela Soleri
The Integrity, Diversity and Equity (IDE) Working Group of the CSA was founded to "take responsibility for including justice, equity and integrity in scientific research among the founding and guiding mandates of our association. We also work with colleagues within and beyond our association to support and advance those mandates in practice." Through clarity, a willingness to make values explicit, and recognition of structural and historical sources of inequity in communities and academic and other professional scientific organizations, our goal is to support citizen science practice that is positive for society. In this symposium IDE members giving short presentations, and many more members who will be present, will discuss our work to date including guidance on language and processes for the association in general, extensive involvement with the CSA 2017 conference planning process, a series of issues statements defining critical concepts for equitable partnerships, and collaborating with other working groups. During the open discussion we will elaborate further on this work, but especially provide space for attendees with their own ideas for accomplishing this goal. Suggestions and critiques will be summarized as a group process at the end of the symposium, posted on the IDE webpage and responded to by IDE over the summer, also to be posted.
