With 2018 coming to a close, Elizabeth has seven suggestions for ways to support equality and inclusion in 2019.
For many of us, the new year can be a time for making changes and committing to doing something different to make our lives better. Personally, I prefer to change things when the time feels right, not just when the calendar says so. But, if you’re a lover of new year’s resolutions, here are a few suggestions that could help you to make positive changes for equality and diversity in the new year. I hope you’ll find them easy to do and that maybe they’ll help you to feel a little happier and healthier too.
Creating a more inclusive and supportive scientific community can feel like a challenge but by all working together, we can create a happier working environment that welcomes, appreciates and benefits everyone, and that produces even better science.
I don’t have all the answers but I know that lots of people making little changes can have a huge impact so I hope you’ll find my small suggestions helpful. Whether you adopt these resolutions or think of your own, I wish you a happy and prosperous new year!
