What’s Happening

From the President, Andone Lavery

The Oceanography Society is committed to advancing Justice, Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (JEDI) in the ocean sciences. The TOS JEDI Committee was inaugurated in Fall 2020 with the goals of supporting the TOS community in these endeavors. While one of the most meaningful aspects of being a member of The Oceanography Society (TOS) is the opportunity to recognize and celebrate our colleagues’ accomplishments through the expanded TOS Honors program, I chose to postpone an entire cycle of the TOS Honors program due to lack of diverse participation in Fall 2021. To help us identify and remedy these concerns, the TOS JEDI committee has provided me with a broad set of recommendations, which I am sharing with the community and can be found here. I welcome an open dialogue and input from the community at large on these recommendations and you can reach me at The TOS Fellows program will be soliciting nominations in Fall 2022, and I invite you to provide feedback on the recommendations made by the JEDI committee to make the call for nominations more welcoming of diverse achievements. Based on the input from the community the call for nominations will likely be revised. Very importantly, for this program to be a success, I also encourage a broad effort in nominating and recognizing your colleagues for this program. Learn more about the TOS Fellows program here.

Help Build a Better Oceanography Magazine
