IgDEAS is Inclusivity and gender Diversity in Earth and Atmospheric Sciences!  For more information and the external website with events, meeting and contact information, and more, click here.


Our mission is to help create an environment within our department that empowers and encourages women and TGNC (transgender and gender non-conforming) individuals to pursue careers in earth and atmospheric sciences through personal and professional development opportunities and engagement from the entire University of Oregon earth science community.

In our community we work to:

  1. Provide professional development opportunities for members of the UO Earth Sciences Department geared towards equipping attendees with the technical and practical skills needed to succeed in the field.
  2. Develop clear pathways for reporting inappropriate behavior, harassment, and discrimination in a manner that empowers the reporter.
  3. Change departmental and greater professional culture to remove both institutional and unspoken barriers that hinder the success of female-identified scientists.

Please come join us at one of our upcoming events or our bi-weekly meetings! All are welcome!
