Progress to Date

Our EDI committee was formed after the Capra 23 Meeting in 2020. Since then, we have gradually started to implement new measures to further our understanding and increase awareness of the obstacles that underrepresented groups experience in academia.

Our progress to date includes:

  • Annual Capra EDI Team reports presented at Capra since 2021 (the 2021 EDI report can be viewed here).

  • Annual invited EDI speakers to Capra since 2021 (watch 2021's invited speaker Dr. Imogen R. Coe talk about Uncomfortable Truths and Inclusive Excellence in Academic Science and the discussion that followed).

  • Annual EDI Survey issued during Capra since 2021 (see 2021's report here).

  • Launch of the Official Capra Meeting Website with a dedicated EDI section.

Let us know if they have any questions (you can contact us anonymously).

We will soon publish a report on the demographic survey findings from Capra 25.
