Planetary science and space exploration community members,
Please read and sign this letter (and pass it further):
There has been much discussion in the news recently about sexual harassment in several fields – and those that have made it to media visibility are generally only the most extreme cases. To define the needed change and to enact that change, we need visibility and people involved and invested at all career levels – most especially senior members of our community, as they often
have the largest influence on culture and institutional policies/ enforcement. This letter calls for that engagement.
This letter will likely be published in one of our community’s journals to emphasize further the importance of discussions and actions.
(And, as possible, please think about what you can do – beyond the letter – about making our community more inclusive. We define ourculture, so it is up to each one of us to see the problems and create the change we think is needed.)
Dr. Serina Diniega, Mars scientist and one of the open letter
