The central idea of SEISMIC is promoting equity and inclusion in STEM, with introductory courses at our 10 member institutions allowing us to hone our focus. Additionally, we recognize that it is important to also ensure that equity and inclusion are prioritized within the structure of SEISMIC itself in order to promote a safe environment for its members, as well as to ensure that we are not turning our backs on the very ideas we are working towards in our efforts.
After the 2021 Summer Meeting, the SEISMIC Collaboration Council sent out a letter to SEISMIC that detailed the steps that will be taken in order to ensure that SEISMIC is upholding the very values it wants to implement in its projects and work.
This page exists as part of SEISMIC’s efforts to ensure equity, inclusion, and transparency in the collaborative itself. It is to serve as a space for all these conversations and the efforts that will be brought forth from those conversations.
In order for SEISMIC to reassess its structures, mission, and priorities in a way that provides a voice to all members of the collaboration, the SEISMIC Collaboration Council will hold an open forum on July 30th, 2021. This meeting will be to discuss the goals of the Task Force and how the team will be selected and compensated. An external facilitator will be engaged in order to guide this discussion.
