DEI-Related Events During AGU 2021 Fall Meeting

As we are excited about the upcoming AGU fall meeting, we present a list of AGU events that invite you to learn how to increase accessibility, justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion in our Geoscience community. We encourage you to participate and engage in these events to 1) get connected with peers, mentors, and community and 2) contribute to creating a more welcoming and diverse Geoscience community. These events are held in hybrid or online-only format and the time is indicated in CT.
