Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Policy

EASE is wholeheartedly committed to supporting equity, diversity, inclusion and accessibility within EASE and in academic research, scholarly communication, and organisational workforces. In accordance with the definitions of equity, diversity, inclusion and accessibility set out by C4DISC, we endeavour to support:

1.) equity by ensuring all EASE members and the communities we serve have (or are signposted towards) the resources and support they need to access the same opportunities as their peers;

2.) diversity by advocating for greater demographic representation (gender, race, age, ability, and more) in academic, research and publishing workforces, research datasets, funding panels, and other relevant entities;

3.) inclusion by highlighting structural and systemic barriers that serve to perpetuate biases, and adopting transparent policies and practices so that historically excluded individuals have equitable access to the opportunities and resources that will enable them to contribute to their organisation or community (e.g. within their academic institution or a research study); and

4.) accessibility by striving to make sure everyone can equally access or engage in the same information, interactions and services.

We also aim to ensure EASE provides a voice for marginalised communities through the publications and resources it shares, respects individual identities and experiences, and is an inclusive and accessible environment for its members.
