The Safe AGU program was designed to promote safety and offer support to meeting attendees who may feel harassed, threatened or unsafe in any way when participating in AGU meetings. Volunteers and staff at AGU events wearing Safe AGU buttons have been trained to assist those who experience unsafe or inappropriate behavior at Fall Meeting.

AGU Ethics and Equity Center: The AGU Ethics and Equity Center provides resources to educate, promote and ensure responsible scientific conduct and establish tools, practices and data for organizations to foster a positive work climate in science.

Meet a Scientist!

Looking to connect with your peers outside of conferences? At AGU VGP, we are highlighting the diverse array of innovative scientists represented in our section on our social media platforms. Whether you are a student, early career scientist, professor or anybody in between, we would love to hear about you, your interests and the research you're conducting. If you'd like to be featured on our social media pages (i.e., Twitter, Instagram, Facebook), then please fill out this form! You are welcome to nominate somebody else, too, but you must obtain consent prior to doing so.

The goal of this initiative is to introduce the broader geoscience field to our section’s scientists and the pioneering research they conduct. It serves to foster diversity and inclusion in VGP by amplifying the stories and research of persons from all backgrounds. We thus encourage submissions and nominations from any and every VGP member!
