Ecohydrology Laboratory

Anti-racism and Anti-discrimination Resources

The INSTAAR Ecohydrology Lab is committed to creating a program that feels inclusive and supportive for people from all backgrounds and identities. Our lab want to help every member of INSTAAR find a support network that feels right for them/her/him. Our lab works in collaboration with the INSTAAR J.E.D.I. Task Force to advance departmental diversity and inclusion efforts. It is our responsibility to educate ourselves about diversity issues in STEM, and to learn how best to combat bias and prejudice and to promote social equality. A growing list of resources concerning diversity issues in STEM can be found below (special thanks to the Taylor Lab in EBIO for compiling many of these resources):
