The APECS Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Project Group has curated a repository of resources based on their relevance to the APECS community and others working in polar regions. We have included resources specifically related to polar research in addition to more general resources with insight on STEM, academia, and fieldwork. These resources are grouped into one or more of the following categories: Safety in science, Gender, LGBTQIA+, Ethnicity, Parenthood, Indigenous communities, Disability, Community Guidelines, Networks. We welcome suggestions for additions to our resource repository. Any further questions can be directed to
