A Consensus Report on Recommendations from the 2022 Advancing IDEA in Planetary Science Conference

  • 1. Lunar and Planetary Institute (USRA)


The Advancing IDEA in Planetary Science Conference was held virtually on April 25 - 29, 2022. A key outcome of this conference was to identify community-led actionable and tangible recommendations to advance IDEA (Inclusion, Diversity, Equity, and Accessibility) principles within the planetary science and astrobiology community. To do this, the conference organized discussions throughout the week into seven Working Groups: (1) Recommendations for Funding Agencies, (2) Recommendations for Universities, (3) Recommendations for Research Groups, (4) Recommendations for Professional Organizations, (5) Recommendations for Employers and about Employment, (6) Recommendations about Safety and Accessibility, and (7) Recommendations about Public Engagement and Outreach. The Working Groups were led by co-facilitators who led asynchronous conversations via Slack and two focused discussion sessions during the conference. After the conference, the Working Groups organized their recommendations into a summary report. This Consensus Report collates and summarizes the recommendations from the seven Working Groups.


Although the conference conveners are listed as report authors in this entry, we note that this is a community consensus report. All contributors are listed in this report on pages ii - iii.
