Report of the Workshop to Promote Safety in Field Sciences

  • 1. CSU Desert Studies
  • 2. Consortium for Ocean Leadership


Report of the Workshop to Promote Safety in Field Sciences that was organized by CSU Desert Studies and the Consortium for Ocean Leadership on 24-26 March 2021. The workshop resulted in 52 recommendations targeted at improving field science culture change, as well as misconduct accountability, policy, and reporting. Diversity, equity, inclusion, and justice (DEIJ) and trainings were additional cross-cutting topics. The recommendations focus on improving experiences for field participants of all backgrounds and identities. The recommendations represent a starting point, and we hope that the report will inspire and guide different audiences and actors in field science in implementing some or all of these recommendations, and to do so in a collaborative, community-based way.
