Diversity in Astronomy Workshop 2016

This year, the Women in Astronomy Chapter has become the Inclusion, Diversity, Equity in Astronomy (IDEA) Chapter and will start to address
broader diversity issues in our community. So we are pleased to bring you the first Diversity in Astronomy workshop that will continue to build upon previous workshops and broaden the idea of diversity in Astronomy and the actions we can take.

This 2-day workshop (28-29 June 2016) will be held by the School of Physics at the University of Melbourne and will focus on the topics of unconscious bias, institutional change, diversity via gender, cultural and sexual identity and mindfulness.  We hope the entire workshop will be of interest to astronomers of all diversity groups, and we encourage community members from all genders to attend. Over the two days there will be both presentations as well as workshop sessions.

Registration has now closed. The workshop is free to attend, however we request that you register for catering purposes.  There will be a conference dinner (self-funded) held Tuesday evening on 28 June. The Women in Science Parkville Precinct and CAASTRO are partnering with us to host a public lecture  and cocktail reception Monday evening on the 27 June 2016 for delegates and special guests.

Please see the registration page for the delegates list.
