EPSP executive and working group committee members are leading working groups (“pod”) for the upcoming URGE (Unlearning Racism in the Geosciences) program, an NSF-funded and geoscientist-led initiative that aims to:
  1. Deepen the community’s knowledge of the effects of racism on the participation and retention of Black, Brown, and Indigenous people in Geoscience, 
  2. Draw on existing literature, expert opinions, and personal experiences to develop anti-racist policies and strategies, and 
  3. Share, discuss, and modify anti-racist policies and strategies within a dynamic community network and on a national stage. 
Update Jan. 14: We've had a great response to our call for participants in URGE, and sadly  do not have room for any more participants. Please contact the folks at URGE if you wish to form another group on your own, or with your institution
