Guide to Organizing Inclusive Scientific Meetings

by Joanna Bridge on April 24, 2019

Conferences can be an invigorating experience for many astronomers, giving people a chance to share research, make new contacts in the field, and socialize with colleagues. For many, however, meetings end up being stressful and anxiety-inducing, particularly for people in marginalized groups. 500 Women Scientists recently published a guide on how to organize inclusive scientific meetings.

This guide has been highlighted recently by the AAS Committee on the Status of Women blog Women in Astronomy and Nature and provides detailed principles and resources to use and consider when organizing a scientific conference.

For future reference, you can also find this guide is linked on the AstroBetter Wiki under Conference Hosting.
