We aim to build a community that reflects the demographics of our society and that values empathy and well-being along with academic and professional achievement. Find here the information, programs and resources to support you and our aspiration for a community that recognizes, celebrates and embraces all worldviews.
We support Diversity in the Geosciences, a course that prepares students to address the participation and inclusion challenges uniquely faced in the geosciences, along with other courses in environmental justice.
The first step toward a diverse and inclusive community is awareness. Dig into our DEI library to find articles and books on topics from equity in the classroom to land acknowledgment, anti-Black racism, sexual harassment, environmental justice, and more.
Learn more about our workshops for faculty, staff and students on DEI best practices including inclusive teaching, upstander training, and anti-racism sensitivity.
Learn more about postdoc positions for scholars who advance diversity in the Earth, energy, and environmental sciences.

We reach out to targeted institutions and conferences to support diversity in student, faculty and staff recruitment.
A new certificate program provides a framework for Stanford Earth graduate students and postdoctoral researchers to learn new skills, gain practical experience, and produce portfolio pieces that will broaden their professional preparedness.
