Disability Consensus Statement
The American Geosciences Institute (AGI) statement on access and inclusion of geoscientists living with disabilities, written as a community document in 2015, serves to increase awareness of the challenges we face and the responsibilities we have as a community, and provides examples of ethical practices toward this group of individuals. A list of AGI’s membership societies who have agreed to formally support this statement is provided and includes the Geoscience Division of the Council on Undergraduate Research (GeoCUR). A downloadable PDF is available online. This is the first step, of many, on our collective journey to providing full access and promoting inclusion of geoscientists with disabilities into our academic programs and workforce.
