Arctic science suffers from systemic biases that marginalize and exclude people who are Black, Indigenous, or from other under-represented minorities both in the Arctic region and around the world. During this workshop we will hear from speakers who have been impacted by these issues, and are working to eliminate them. Through breakout discussions we will provide actionable recommendations for IASC and the Arctic Sciences community to continue to tackle these issues. This proposal aims to work across working groups, as this issue affects all areas of Arctic Science.
