ASA Inclusion, Diversity and Equity Chapter

Welcome to the Inclusion, Diversity and Equity in Astronomy (IDEA) Chapter of the Astronomical Society of Australia. The Chapter was established as the Women in Astronomy Chapter by the ASA Council in November 2009, to raise the profile of women in Australian astronomy. In 2016, the Chapter aims were broadened to include wider diversity issues and was renamed to reflect this change.

The 2016 Diversity in Astronomy Workshop will be held at the University of Melbourne from 28 – 29 June, 2016.

We have recently published a Conference Gender-balance endorsement policy and added an Anti-harassment advice page.
