Fulfilling the need for greater Equity, Inclusion and Diversity within Society for Conservation Biology sections

Fulfilling the need for greater Equity, Inclusion and Diversity within Society for Conservation Biology sections

Abstract

Within sections and at the International Congresses for Conservation Biology (ICCB), the Society for Conservation Biology (SCB) has sought to address issues of Equity, Inclusion, and Diversity. This ongoing process has resulted in the creation of the SCB Equity, Inclusion and Diversity (EID) Committee, conference EID committees, and, in some sections, EID officers. How effective have sections been at addressing EID issues, what have been their challenges and accomplishments, and what future steps can be taken? These questions and others will be addressed in this session, which aims to bring together section representatives and members and the broader SCB community to address EID issues, especially challenges and suggestions for how to address them.
