Towards an Inclusive Arctic Science Community

The Inclusion in Northern Research Project, which was developed through the course of the last year and premiered at the Arctic Change 2020 virtual meeting, began with the creation of videos highlighting the varied journeys of our colleagues, and grew into an online discussion that included over 1000 people in 35 countries, starting important conversations about inclusion in our research community in a safe and open space. This initiative will continue through the year ahead with a series of interdisciplinary dialogues about inclusion within the northern research community, the first of which will be screened for the 2021 Arctic Science Summit Week.

Join us in Lisbon March 19 for Arctic Science Summit Week 2021.

Our participation was made possible with support from:

Thank you to the City of Winnipeg, Manitoba for supporting the Inclusion in Northern Research project and our participating Winnipeg youth and Elders
