The Department Ecology, Evolution & Organismal Biology at Brown is committed to promoting diversity, equity, and inclusion in all aspects of our teaching, mentoring, research, and departmental activities. The EEOB community shares a passion for understanding how organisms function, how they interact with their environments, and how the mechanisms that sustain these processes have evolved over time. We are a diverse community of scholars, educators, and students united in our commitment to an inclusive environment and a vibrant future that enables all facets of our society to contribute to a scientific enterprise that broadens understanding of the natural world. This is grounded in our knowledge that the best science requires an inclusive environment, and that long-standing biases exist in STEM that negatively impact members of our community and science as a whole. Thus, we strive to be a community in which a diverse set of thoughts, perspectives, and experiences are valued such that all individuals, regardless of race, ethnicity, nationality, gender, sexual orientation, religion, age, or ability feel that they are welcome here and belong here. We are a community committed to educating ourselves, to learning about and from each other, and to openly discussing biases, barriers, and inequities that some of us may face, while committing ourselves to recognizing and eliminating them. We bring this commitment to our research laboratories, our classrooms, our meetings, and our social events. We are further committed to accepting feedback, learning from our mistakes, and working to improve. We are also committed to actively combating racism and racist practices. We are thus dedicated to advocating for and bringing about institutional change, and serving as a role model for the rest of the university and for other departments of ecology, evolution, and organismal biology around the world.
